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. For over 25 years, Homeboy Industries has been transforming the lives of formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated individuals by imagining an inclusive circle of compassion, kinship, and mutuality where there is no “us and them,” just “us.”
THE VILLAGE COOKIE SHOPPE is a pretty extraordinary place. We’re owned and operated by Mental Health America of Los Angeles. MHA uses the Village Cookie Shoppe revenue to help homeless adults and young people with disabilities get an education, a job, and a place to call home. We guess you could say we’re not your cookie cutter kind of shop.
