PASTOR RUDY TRUJILLO began working with youth in the San Francisco’s Mission District in the summer of 1980 which led to the developing and understanding of the power of a spiritual intervention and it’s power to transform, restore, reclaim and rebuilt fallen humanity, while in San Francisco and conducting outreaches into the neighborhoods, projects and the Streets of San Francisco we realized that in some cases we needed to take a more holistic approach for a greater outcome.

Through the understanding of the gang culture. and the practice of early prevention and intervention we have witnessed first hand a greater outcome in our community. Pastor Rudy has said that “this experience over the last 12 years with the GRYD while working with Charter Schools, Probation within the LAUSD along with working with MSW Interns candidates has really shaped the philosophy of the need to be faith-base driven while connecting community resources and services for transformational impact on families”.
