Red Shield Youth And Community Center

The Robert and Tilly Red Shield Community Center aka The Salvation army with a red shield logo is located right off s Union avenue and 11th st. I know its been there since at least the mid 80s and i was wondering was it connected to 18 street red shield clique? Also what are the red shield cliques boundaries?

I can’t speak much on it but I’ve always assumed that 18th Street Red Shield clique is directly related to the Red Shield youth center.

A lot of youth community groups throughout history which were designed to keep kids out of trouble ended up becoming gangs. Wasn’t White Fence originally a community youth group at a church? So were the Blackstones Rangers aka the Black P. Stones. I’m guessing this 18th Street clique came from kids who hung out at this Red Shirld community center.

^ ^ like V Lincoln Heights at the Cinco Puntos, what was it? a YMCA youth community center or something like that?

Thee V LHTS of today is not the same gang that some claim to be from the early part of the 1900s century, nopes, it's a diff one, born in the 80s
