DCU Round 21 – Homeboy Industries

Howdy Homie,

Sometimes in life, the best part is a fresh start. Fr. Gregory Boyle felt that way when he joined the Dolores Mission Church, in a heavily gang controlled part of LA. He knew throwing gang bangers in jail for a stint and then kicking them back out into the world with a felony glued to their record wasn’t the best way to rehabilitate the folks in his community. Over the course of 30 years, Homeboy Industries, has become the largest gang intervention, rehab, and re-entry program in the world. Grab a bag of ‘Homeboy’ chippies and salsa next time your at the grocery store!
