About meHomeboy Industries

What does Homeboy do?

We help formerly gang involved men and women and the previously incarcerated, by offering hope, training and job skills. Our goal: To help former gang members redirect their lives and become contributing members of their families and our community. Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention program in the nation and has become a model for other organizations and cities.

How long has Homeboy been around?

The program was started by Father Greg Boyle in 1988 to answer the need for employment opportunities among youth. It began in the Dolores Mission Parish in Boyle Heights (East Los Angeles). Today, Homeboy is located in gang-neutral downtown Los Angeles.

About my libraryWith the goal of bringing university level education to marginalized urban populations, Homeboy Industries has opened a library.
