Francisco “Cisco” Gallardo

Francisco “Cisco” Gallardo is a Senior Grant Project Coordinator for NCN’s Healing Generations Institute (HGI). HGI promotes familial community healing and addresses persistent community strife through retreats, gatherings, and the incorporation of indigenous culturally-based practices.

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Cisco devoted his life to working with Denver’s inner-city, at-risk, and/or gang-involved youth in the development of a productive and safe environment in their home and neighborhood through the use of strength-based prevention and intervention programs.
