Transformation Story

Meet Johnny Gomez

Johnny Gomez conquered a long, hard fight as he got off of probation for the first time since 2010! Johnny began his time as a Trainee at Homeboy Industries, and now serves the Homeboy Fire Crew while also training to become a welder. “This day feels really good. I had always been on and off, in and out of prison. But, not anymore thanks to Homeboy. This place has helped me to stay busy, to stay working, and to stay clean. Following the program has taken me a long way.”
