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.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they are hopeful and hard working. A great combination.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing! Loving and compassionate and kept a sense of humor. A lot like the founder actually.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make an even bigger impact on reducing gang violence and giving every gang member a real opportunity to change his/her life.

Ways to make it better...

they had even more funding to help more people!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough money to meet the need for services

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization is a model of excellence for long-lasting individual and community change. It doesn't get any better than this.
