Hands on intervention, education and guidance for former Gang Members, At Risk Kids, those newly released from jail and their Families is key to the success here. The good works done by Father Gregor Boyle, his staff, volunteers and the those going through the "program/jobs" at Homeboy and Homegirls transforms lives in a way that hasn't been done in any other programs.
Father G and his Homie ambassadors are saints in my eye convincing gang members there is a better way of life. They have incredible success against what seem insurmountable odds.
I was extremely welcomed at Homeboy. I came from a Midwest University to volunteer here and it truly changed my perspective on gang intervention and inner-city education. Father Gregory Boyle does an outstanding job with all the homeboys and homegirls. I was very moved with this program. I highly recommend people to get involved.
This the best possible approach to gang intervention. Fr. Greg Boyle and his staff understand what is stake and exactly how to help someone redirect his/her life. I have seen countless young men and women transformed by their contact with this organization.
