“Kinship– not serving the other, but being one with the other.” -Father G


HA OnMn Eu B Ye p IN a lO R oD r t U2S0T1 R8 I E S


Dear Friends, Decades ago, in the face of harsh law enforcement tactics, toughon-crime policies and a wave of mass incarceration, we adopted a radical approach: treat gang members as individuals, capable of healing and transformation. We started by addressing the demonization of L.A.’s gang-involved population. It wasn’t easy. No one would hire from this group, and fundraising was a challenge. We were the target of bomb threats and hate mail -- not from gang members, but from folks who took exception to us assisting gang members. At the time, Homeboy Industries represented the first and only exit ramp off the violent “gang freeway.” Even for those gang members who didn’t walk through our doors, we were a symbol of hope and relief, the bright possibility of something different. We are enthusiastic about our staff: an inclusive mix of community members, outside professionals and former clients. Those promoted from within the organization understand the issues our clients face. We have made a strategic commitment to invest in our own people to be the next generation of leaders. In 2018, we intentionally heightened focus and resources on two vital segments of our community: women and young people. While women constitute a smaller portion of the gang population, they face unique reentry challenges, including domestic violence and barriers to family reunification. We launched a Summer Youth Program aimed at ending intergenerational cycles of poverty and incarceration before they take root. We don’t just stand with former gang members, but also with those affiliated. Our reach continues to expand beyond Los Angeles. We are growing the annual Global Homeboy Network Gathering, where we welcome hundreds of delegations from around the world to visit us and learn from our model, creating a wide-reaching ripple effect that extends far into communities around the world. Homeboy Industries is a key player in reshaping society’s ideas about how we treat the formerly incarcerated and prevent recidivism. We are always refining what we do, adapting to new developments within our population and the ever-changing criminal justice system. We look forward to being a model for years to come.

Homeboy Industries As the national dialogue on criminal justice shifts from retribution to reform, Homeboy Industries remains a thought leader and innovator in the field. For more than 30 years, Homeboy Industries has helped formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women redirect their lives and become contributing members of their communities. With an array of free programs and services, Homeboy Industries exists as a place of hope that restores dignity to the most marginalized and demonized populations. Founded by Father Greg Boyle in 1988 to address the need for employment and educational opportunities among gang-involved youth, Homeboy Industries is now the largest and most successful gang intervention, rehabilitation and reentry program in the world. We got here by standing with the demonized, offering healing to the broken, and investing in our future. Homeboy Industries remains a thought leader and innovator in the field, and we are committed to broadening our reach by advocating for policies that affect our community members and by expanding the Global Homeboy Network, a group of over 400 like-minded organizations from around the world that use Homeboy Industries as a model. We’ve grown into an almost $20 million organization, but our ambition does not stop there. Our goal over the next five years is to double our size and impact, building up our flagship 18-month reentry program to serve 500 men and women. To achieve these long-term ambitions, we will build on our success over the last 30 years and create the capacity for sustainable growth over the next 30. Our work is far from done. Homeboy Industries will continue to focus locally while helping create a more compassionate global community. Of course, expansion is going to take growth of our business and increased support from those of you who have already so generously donated, as well as more funding from local, state and federal sources. Thank you for being a part of this movement.

Annual Report 2018


Client Impact For most, a criminal record is a life sentence to poverty. Youth released from juvenile facilities often have little to no options to finish their schooling in safe areas. Men and women recently released from prison lack access to secure housing. Histories of substance abuse can result in mental health concerns, and an absence of solid relational support systems increases the chances of relapse and recidivism. Homeboy Industries is intimately acquainted with the many barriers to reentry, and we have responded by imagining and implementing a model that creates different outcomes:*



In 2018, 65% of Trainees reported arrests in the 3 months prior to joining Homeboy Industries.

In comparison, only 1% of Trainees reported arrests after joining Homeboy Industries.

Annual Report 2018


2018 Highlights Summer Youth Program Supporting our youth through social justice and the arts Young people leaving juvenile justice facilities face many obstacles as they reenter the community, home, school and workforce. Unfortunately, many youth return to unstable home settings, struggle to remain in school and lack the skills needed for employment upon leaving the juvenile system. In 2018, Homeboy Industries sought to address these issues with the launch of its Summer Youth Program, located at its First Street location. The pilot program was hugely popular, admitting over one hundred participants. Many participants were our own formerly incarcerated youth, while others were relatives of those in our 18-month program. The program focused on the arts and social justice and featured field trips to places like the California Science Center and the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. As the program moves forward, we hope to be a place where students build new relationships, explore their passions, and stay busy and productive. The Summer Youth Program is a key example of Homeboy Industries’ expansive approach to putting an end to the cycle of incarceration and poverty. By intervening with this youth population today, we can make sure young people have hope and options to choose a different path.

Women’s Programming Helping women heal Formerly incarcerated and gang-involved women constitute one of the fastest-growing, yet most underserved and overlooked populations in California. Women reentering society face unique and ongoing challenges involving trauma, abuse, low self-esteem, lack of family support, unhealthy relationships, and mental health concerns. A successful reentry program must respond to the specific effects of incarceration and gang violence on all facets of a woman’s life. As such, Homeboy Industries offers a truly comprehensive range of supportive services to foster individual empowerment for women. One such service is Woman 2 Woman, a space for women to come together and share their stories of pain and healing. “Being in that circle for an hour, everything becomes so real: our feelings, our tears, our laughter. We all become one. It’s our safe haven,” says Jeannette Felix, Navigator at Homeboy Industries. Maria Flores, Director of Strategic Initiatives, is collaborating and building partnerships with outside organizations to develop more woman-focused programming at Homeboy Industries. “It’s necessary,” she says, “because it provides a space to love and embrace each other, to see the similarities in the stories we share and the burdens we carry.”

Homeboy Streetwear Spreading the message through fashion This year, Homeboy Industries made a big splash in the world of fashion with the launch of its limited edition streetwear collection of knit athleisure. The collection was created in partnership with L.A.-based clothing manufacturer, Studio 9d8, and the Change Crowd, a brand collective that promotes social awareness of philanthropic organizations with high-quality merchandise.

This streetwear collection is the first venture within the Homeboy Industries co*lab: a new incubator designed to facilitate innovative partnerships with like-minded brands and creative collaborators. Proceeds from co*lab ventures go directly towards supporting the Homeboy Industries’ mission. “We’re excited about the launch of the co*lab”, states Kim S. Johnson, Director of Marketing. “Our Homeboy Streetwear collection is more than just a clothing line - it is a way for the organization to reach new audiences and spread its mission of compassion to a whole new generation.”

Internal Promotions Investing in the next generation of leaders When Homeboy Industries needs to hire, it looks within. In fact, over half of our full-time staff is comprised of individuals who have gone through our program as trainees. Hiring individuals who come from the very communities we serve keeps Homeboy Industries true to its mission. It also allows us to develop programs and services that speak directly to the needs of those who walk through our doors. We often find that those who develop through our program and transition to staff are well suited at providing innovative solutions to our toughest challenges. Further, former trainees often find continued redemption in the work they do every day helping their peers transform. This unique model has a huge hand in shaping and solidifying the future of our organization.

Transformative Work Pablo gets back on track Pablo Valencia was facing time for yet another drug charge when his lawyer pitched an idea that would allow him to walk free: “Let’s just Prop 36 you out of this,” the lawyer said, referring to the initiative that allows defendants convicted of non-violent drug crimes to receive probationary sentences in lieu of incarceration. “No, I want three months of rehab,” Pablo said. The lawyer was shocked; Pablo’s decision didn’t make sense to him. He had basically been handed a get out of jail free card, only to refuse it. But Pablo knew that he needed more help, and he didn’t trust himself out in the free world yet. Years earlier, Pablo seemed to be heading down the right path. He had achieved success as a graphic artist and lived a sober, fairly buttoned-up life. Then, he relapsed on drugs -- a relapse that would last 14 years. “I was on drugs and committing crimes,” Pablo says, “I was a criminal for profit, in and out of jail. This last time, though, I said that’s it - I can’t do this anymore. I was tired. I had two kids, and I wanted to be an example to them.” Pablo knew that there was no way that


“I’m here because I never gave up. Homeboy sees that in me.”

he could quit drugs on his own. “The only way was to be forced, on lockdown,” he reflects. So Pablo asked the judge to sentence him to rehab. Still, Pablo’s past haunted him. After he completed the rehab program, he was sent back to jail for an old crime. After serving some more time, Pablo got a tip about Homeboy Industries and entered the trainee program. Seven months later, he started as an intern at Homeboy Electronics Recycling, where he was recently hired. Now, when Pablo walks into the bustling downtown warehouse every day to perform the labor-intensive work of taking apart, refurbishing and shredding electronics, he is proud to be a part of Homeboy Electronics Recycling and the good work it’s doing. “This job has helped me transition from a life of drugs and crime - all I knew - back to a life as a normal, working person,” Pablo says. There is a certain poetry to the mission of giving second chances not only to discarded electronics but also to the formerly incarcerated. Both the workers and the technology flowing through the business still have value; Homeboy Electronics Recycling is about capturing and restoring that value. Pablo is grateful for the opportunity he’s gotten and to be employed by a company that values his efforts. He continues to work at Homeboy Electronics Recycling to this day, not just for a paycheck, but because it’s his way of giving back to Homeboy Industries and Father Greg. “I’m here because I never gave up,” he says. “Homeboy sees that in me.” Annual Report 2018

Breaking the Cycle Hazel overcomes a turbulent past “If I don’t leave right now, I’m going to end up hurting someone,” Hazel warned the parenting class instructor. She wasn’t kidding. Hazel desperately tried to summon all that she had learned from her time at Homeboy Industries. Knowing she had been let go once before over a violent outburst, she knew she couldn’t afford to let the situation escalate. But in the end, Hazel was fired once again. She fell into a deep depression, ready to give up on life. But her husband urged her to give it another shot. “You need to go over there and get your job back and work on yourself.” So Hazel returned to Homeboy Industries, and the staff gave her another chance, as long as she took anger management classes.


“They didn’t give up on me, and they didn’t allow me to give up on myself. They saw something in me that I didn’t see,” she says. Hazel first got to Homeboy Industries in 2009 after losing custody of her children. She wasn’t serious about changing. To her, the Bruno Street campus was a “kickback spot for the homies,” a place where she could hang out for a bit and maybe get the heat off her back. It’s been a year since Hazel was re-hired, and she’s been violencefree for just as long. Thanks to the organization’s myriad mental health services, Hazel is breaking a cycle she once felt doomed to repeat. Through anger management classes, Hazel had a revelation. “I realized why I had so much anger, so much hurt, so much hatred,” she says. “It dawned on me and I broke down and cried in front of everybody.” Hazel realized that she had never let go of the anger she harbored for her mother. “My dad was an abusive man, and it bugged me that she allowed him to abuse her and us as kids,” she reveals. Hazel wondered why her mother didn’t protect her, why she had to suffer. “I had to let my mother go. Ever since I did, I’ve been free.”

Through anger management, therapy and women’s groups, Hazel began to work on herself. At first, she didn’t want to admit that her violent outbursts were even a problem. It took her months to open up to her therapist. “I thought therapy was full of crap,” she recalls. But the therapist eventually won Hazel’s trust. She talked to Hazel as if she was her friend. She opened up to Hazel about her own struggles. Today, when emotions flare up, Hazel draws on the advice of her therapist and other women in the program. She feels stronger when she asks for help. She’s pursuing a career in longhaul trucking, a dream she’s had since she was young. She’s confident that as she goes through this healing process, her kids will come back into her life. “I’m a stronger person today because of Homeboy,” she concludes.

Reading Allows Raymond to Get Back to Work For years, Raymond Pickett hid the fact that he couldn’t read or write. He excelled as an airport mechanic through sheer intuition, able to diagnose an ailing engine merely by listening to it. But occasionally, Raymond’s work required written reports. He solved this problem by sneaking into a back office to quietly call his girlfriend so she could transcribe for him. It was exhausting work, keeping the act up. Seven years into his job at the airport, a background check revealed a criminal charge on Raymond’s record, and as a result, he was fired. “There’s not a car, truck or trailer that I can’t fix,” Raymond proudly declares. But in order for him to return to his line of work elsewhere, Raymond would have to pass a written test. A year and a half ago, Raymond came to Homeboy Industries, fiercely determined to get back to work -- and to change his life. “He was a tutor glutton,” Steve Klatzker, Raymond’s tutor, says. “No one was as serious as Raymond. He desperately wanted to read.” Steve goes on: “It was a fascinating thing. Here’s a very sophisticated man, who got by for so long without being able to read. The challenge was to not start with a book that had teddy bears and bunnies in it because that would have been insulting. I would find texts on engineering, on things like the Panama Canal, to engage him...things that weren’t dumbed down.” Raymond has made incredible strides in the year since he has been working with Steve. The anxiety he used to feel around others, the fear that they’d discover his secret, is gone, replaced by confidence. For Raymond, literacy has opened the doors to a new life.
