Homeboy offers an “exit ramp” for those stuck in a cycle of violence and incarceration, helping them develop the strength and skills to transform their lives and become contributing members of society. Homeboy Industries was created under the vision of Father Gregory Boyle, a well-recognized pastor, former high school teacher, youth advocate, author and speaker on gangs and intervention approaches. Each year, Homeboy serves over 8,000 clients with a wide-range of trauma-informed services, employing over 400 clients as trainees in transitional employment. Homeboy Industries is truly changing lives in Los Angeles and AT&T is proud to support the organization’s efforts.
