    We improve lives of former gang members, and have evolved into the largest gang intervention, rehab and re-entry program in the world.

    “Gang violence is not about anything… it is just the language of kids who have given up.”

    “Nothing stops a bullet like a job.”

    • Father Greg Boyle, aka G-Dog

    Everyone since I saw the movie G-Dog, I have been inspired by this organization in LA which is giving second chances to our returning citizens.   By teaching ex-convicts new skills in baking bread, working in a cafe, managing a business and more, this organization brings hope and helps people reformulate a more positive vision of who they are in the world.

    Trailer to the movie about this organization:

    You can watch the movie G-Dog on Amazon Prime.

    Please consider voting for Homeboy Industries.
