Education vs. Incarceration

Carlo Garcia
Living Philanthropic

(Editor's note: Homeboy Industries is a Featured Charity of Living Philanthropic)

“Homeboy Industries is the living example of our mission statement, “nothing stops a bullet like a job.”

Started as a jobs program offering alternatives to gang violence in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Homeboy Industries assists at-risk, recently released, and formerly gang involved youth to become contributing members of their communities through a variety of services in response to their multiple needs.

Free programs — including counseling, education, tattoo removal, substance abuse and addiction assistance, job training and job placement — enable young people to redirect their lives.

Homeboy provides them with hope for their futures and is the nation’s largest gang-intervention and re-entry program – a model to all.
