Transformation Story

Meet Connie Cordero

Ten years of sobriety! Today we celebrate our very own, Connie Cordero, for hitting such an amazing milestone. Connie began the 18-month program here in 2013, working hard on her recovery and finding her truest self. Now, she is a Navigator for Homeboy Industries, leading and mentoring a group of Trainees.

“I am able to help a lot of the Trainees given that I’ve been in their position. 10 years clean is my greatest achievement. Through this process, I’ve been able to truly find peace within myself. I’ve learned that no matter the struggle, every day is a blessing. There is a better tomorrow no matter how ugly it looks today.”
