Homeboy Industries is the largest gang rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. For over 30 years, we have stood as a beacon of hope in Los Angeles to provide training and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated people, allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.
“We imagine a world without prisons, and then we try to create that world. ”Father Greg Boyle, Founder

“Training: I get it here. Therapy: I get it here. Support for school: I get it here. And sometimes, just a hug from people who support you with their hearts… I get everything. So to me, Homeboy is everything.”
