Transformation Story

"Since coming to Homeboy Industries, I’ve graduated Residential Drug Treatment, obtained housing, become financially independent to support my kids, got a job, and just recently got a car and my driver’s license. This has all taught me a major lesson on patience...things take time." Read More

Legal Services

Our Homeboy Industries Legal Services team works closely with trainees on a variety of issues ranging from managing suspended driver’s licenses to family reunification.

Contact

All accomplished through a system of assessment, advocacy, and accompaniment. Petitions for dismissal or expungements are also provided as a key service that can reduce serious barriers to employment.

In partnership with local volunteer attorneys, the Legal Services team offers consultation clinics (by appointment only) to members of the community seeking consultation on immigration issues and expungements.

The team is happy to include Osmin Sosa, a trainee who came to Homeboy Industries seeking transformation, among the team that helps so many. Osmin remarked that “working in this department has helped me gain the comfort and confidence I need to interact with law enforcement and lawyers. I’m so thankful for the way legal help here has helped myself and my family.”  For more information or to make an appointment for an upcoming clinic, call us at (323) 526-1254, ext. 325 or email legalservicesteam@homeboyindustries.org
