    About Us

    We Exist
    to Save Lives

    When we talk about “Gang Alternative” we are referring to the “gang mentality” that enslaves individuals and families in our communities, keeping them dependent, delinquent and destitute, preventing them from being the best that they can be. GA exists to provide alternatives to change this mindset.

    More About

    A word from our President & CEO

    Gang Alternative, Inc. was birthed out of the need to provide positive alternatives to youth plague d by the realities of living in high violence, high crime communities in Miami-Dade County. The collective understanding that there’s more to ministry work than just teaching “Bible stuff” gave rise to the development of a faith-based organization that embodies the essence of true servant leadership.

    that make us proud


    GA would like to celebrate Rose, who was recently selected as the Miami-Dade County Public Schools District Nominee for the 2020-2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program for Career and Technical Education. The program was established to recognize and honor some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Rose is currently attending Miami Edison Sr. High School and has been an active participant in GA’s Minority Violence Prevention Project (MVP 88) since 2018. Congratulations Rose!


    Andy was desperately searching for housing upon his first interaction with staff at GA’s RENEW Broward.  He had not been having much success. Staff gave him some information on where to search for free housing and apartments, and even prayed with him. Within a month he secured a new apartment. He was very appreciative to staff for the assistance and prayers and stated that it was a great start to his relationship with staff and building trust.


    Twenty-one-year-old Sabrina enrolled in Project RENEW Dade determined to change the narrative of her personal story. She refused to allow past mistakes dictate her future. Project RENEW provided a safety net and backbone for her to complete the requirements to becoming a Phlebotomist. Being in constant contact with her GA Case Manager, she attained Phlebotomist certification and got a job at North Shore Medical Center. Today Sabrina is an essential worker who is contributing to her community.
