Initially Rosie's Garage was designed as a way to combat the growing crime and gang violence within the communities of La Habra in 1991; however, our program has evolved into an after school tutoring program that provides free academic services and supplies to at-risk children. The neighborhoods we serve have seen a positive change in the neighborhood since our program has opened in the area.
Crime Reduction and Prevention
Before our program moved to the Grace location, there was a staggering number of police calls to the neighborhood; however, since our program opened its doors we have continuously seen a decrease in the crime and gang activity in the area. Now, the Grace neighborhood has some of the lowest yearly crime rates in the city, showing a correlation in the effectiveness of our program.
