Homeboy Industries / Homegirl Cafe

Still working on pre-work. Today I read about Homeboy Industries, a project by a Jesuit priest in LA that for the past 25 years has provided jobs and help for former gang members and prevented other youths from joining gangs. Consisting of a cafe, farmers markets, diner, grocery, bakery, silkscreen/embroidery, educational counseling, tattoo removal, legal services, etc etc etc, Homeboy Industries is one of the most inspring projects I’ve read about yet. I’d love to go see it and learn more in person one day!
