ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Toberman Neighborhood Center was established in 1903 as the Toberman Settlement House. Today, it provides social services and educational tools for low-income individuals and families in the San Pedro, Wilmington, and Harbor City/Gateway areas to achieve self-sufficiency.  It aims to move people beyond poverty; create motivated, life-long learners; strengthen respect for the family unit; and cultivate urban peace and interethnic harmony.  It provides an after-school program; a family resources program with case management and wrap-around education and employment support; and gang intervention counselors. It serves more than 18,000 clients each year.

GRANT PURPOSE

The Toberman Gang Intervention Program provides targeted gang members who seek to exit gang life with individualized wrap-around rehabilitative services, including case management, counseling, mentoring, and job preparation in the Harbor/San Pedro area.
