STORIES OF HOPE, COURAGE, TRANSFORMATION AND RADICAL KINSHIP
Streamed Live. Free!
Come and hear the personal and touching stories of Homegirls Selena Prince and Mary Carter, whose inspirational stories, resilience and hard work shine through and touch the core of us individually and as a community.
Homeboy Industries is a heart warming, impactful non-profit institution founded by Father Gregory Boyle, S. J. here in our own Los Angeles. Celebrating its 30th year this year, Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.
Each year over 10,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship, love, and a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes. Full-time employment is offered for more than 200 men and women at a time through an 18-month program that helps them re-identify who they are in the world, offers job training so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community – knowing they count!
