Our Future Vision

2030 Ambition

We will change the way the world views, judges and treats those most marginalized and demonized by society – formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women. By our daily work and commitment to facilitating healing in a trusting, loving community, we will demonstrate to the world a new way forward.

Stand, Heal and Invest

Homeboy Industries will achieve the 2030 Ambition by trusting what our team has learned in a practice developed over three decades. Every strategic goal in our plan is guided by our three core insights.

STAND – We stand with the demonized so that the demonizing will stop, allowing the world to see individuals who are sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters – without judgement.

HEAL – We believe that healing happens in an irresistible culture of relational tenderness, providing a haven for people to discover and inhabit their authentic selves and become whole.

INVEST We believe that investing in every homeboy and homegirl’s future will provide them opportunities for personal, professional and financial growth through programs, services and support that reduce barriers to employment.


We are what we want the world to become – a community of kinship.


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.


We foster a culture of mutual support.


Stand with the demonized so the demonizing will stop. Realize that “they” are us, and that they are parents, children, siblings, friends.


Foster foundational healing so no one reoffends.


Invest in the futures of the marginalized and demonized.
