Stand. Heal. Invest.

We are working change the way the world looks at, judges and treats our most marginalized and demonized community members. To do this, we’re focusing on three insights we’ve picked up along the way that will anchor our growth and set a solid foundation for the future. First, we stand with the demonized so the demonizing will stop. Second, we foster healing so no one will re-offend. Third, we invest in every Homeboy and Homegirl’s future.

“Embrace Each Other,
Support Each Other.”


What We Stand For

We stand with the demonized so the demonizing will stop. We believe that through connection and advocacy the demonizing will stop. Standing with the demonized means allowing the world to see not faceless gang members but individuals who are sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters. It means forgiving and letting go of past transgressions and looking forward without judgment.


Heal With Us

We foster foundational healing so no one re-offends. We believe that healing happens in an irresistible culture of relational tenderness. In order to create this culture, we provide a safe haven for people to discover and inhabit their authentic selves and become whole. We believe in our trainees until they begin to believe in themselves.


Invest in Transformation

We invest in every homeboy and homegirl’s future by providing opportunities for personal, professional and financial growth through programs, services and support that reduce barriers to employment.
