DID YOU KNOW that the 79924 zip code is one of 15 highest zip codes in Texas for juvenile crime?
DID YOU KNOW there are agencies in El Paso providing FREE services to youth to help change this alarming statistic?
In 1995, the Texas Legislature designated the 79924 zip code as one of 15 zip codes in the state of Texas with the highest rates of juvenile crime. This qualified the densely populated area to receive funding under the provisions of the state's community Youth Development Program. The Program is administered by the Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services with El Paso Human Services Inc. serving as the fiscal agent for the El Paso program. Prevention programs have been put into place to bring together appropriate services to prevent juvenile delinquency.
The Community Youth Development offers the following FREE services to youth ages 6-17 that live or go to school in the 79924 zip code.
