In 1997, Angela Reyes founded the Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation, a community-based organization, from her living room because she “was tired of burying children.” To reduce the violence, DHDC’s Gang Retirement and Continuing Education and Employment program (GRACE) formed after forging a truce with leaders of rival gangs, which encouraged “retirement” in return for jobs in local Hispanic-owned manufacturing companies. DHDC has resided at 1211 Trumbull Street in Detroit since 2001 and services over 5,000 youth and adults annually.

"The staff was very cordial, respectful, and helpful...which was opposite from what I was used to. From this program I got the willingness to do and not give up."
