“I did a whole 180. I never thought I would accomplish everything that I’m doing now. If I were to go back, I would lose everything. It might be a struggle— what I’m going through— but it’s only a little obstacle on my way just to get to where I want to be; it’s only momentary gratification. I could lose my job, my home, everything I bought with my hard-earned money... just for a couple hours of [gratification] to lose everything I've worked for? I can't... I love my freedom too much." -Diana Olguin, Trainee at Homeboy Industries #WednesdayWisdom

Thank you, Dr. King, for dreaming of a world where there is no “them” and “us,” but just “us.” We celebrate you today. #mlk #martinlutherkingjr

Celebrating a dear friend of Homeboy Industries today... happy birthday, Jim Carrey! Here’s a #ThrowbackThursday to when he visited our Morning Meeting with some wise and encouraging words. You can find his full talk on our YouTube channel at the link in our bio!

Here’s our take on the #10yearchallenge! This year will mark 12 years in our headquarters on 130 W. Bruno Street in Los Angeles, CA. This building makes it possible for us to welcome nearly 9,000 men and women every year who are seeking a second chance at life.

“It just makes me feel good every time I come to work and I’m able to help train the trainees to better themselves, because I came from the same place.”
Our bakery is one of our longest running social enterprises and an opportunity for our trainees to find employment and to transform their lives, often alongside those who would be considered enemies outside our walls. For more inspiring content, check out the link in our bio!

#ThrowbackThursday to when Former Miss Venezuela and winner of Univision’s 2018 Nuestra Belleza Latina Migbelis Castellanos visited Homeboy Industries! Special thank you to her and the team from @univision for surprising one of our trainees and her family with plenty of gifts for Christmas! #kinshipwings

Share your words with us/tag a friend with whom you’re excited to enter the New Year! #ThursdayThoughts

Tenderness is the highest form of spiritual maturity. All parents know that your kids will soon forget what you told them… but they will always remember …how you made them feel.
May 2019 be many-times blessed, for all of you, in a depth of worth and tenderness.
Happy New Year,
Greg Boyle

From childhood, Anthony was told, "you're never going to amount to anything." Incarcerated at fifteen, he felt alone in the world. Still, somehow, he always knew he was meant to travel the world. Through Homeboy Industries, Anthony found a job, therapy, and the educational resources he needed to achieve one of his biggest dreams: studying abroad. YOU can support stories of hope like Anthony's! Shine your light by donating today at the link in our bio!

Merry Christmas from Homeboy Industries! We hope your day is filled with kinship and joy! #MerryChristmas 🎁
