MonteCedro Welcomes Homeboy Industries’ Boyle

Approximately 100 guests gathered to hear Father Greg Boyle from Homeboy Industries speak at MonteCedro, a senior living community in Altadena. The talk was followed by a tour of the community. Many prospective residents were in attendance.
Homeboy Industries provides hope, training and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of the community. Each year more than 10,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship, love, and a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes.
Full-time employment is offered for more than 200 men and women at a time through an 18-month program that helps them re-identify who they are in the world, offers job training so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community.
