Homeboy Industries is a goodwill organization focused on helping former gang members get out of a life of crime and become a respected member of our society.

We saw an opportunity to give Homeboy Industries a new voice. When we got to know the people who are part of their program, we saw that they are going through incredible changes in their lives. From being drug dealers, petty or serious criminals, and abuse victims to being chefs, mentors, engineers, and so on. At Homeboy Industries, they are given the tools and guidance to make their desire to change a reality. More importantly, however, we saw that everyone in the program has something very important: the strength to change.
