Just in case you haven’t heard of Homeboy Industries and the work of Father Greg Boyle, I thought I would a share it with you. You can read the book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, or watch the documentary G-Dog, or eat at Homegirl Cafe, and much, much, more. There is so much goodness to experience through the work that Father Greg Boyle sparked. And that spark has now turned into Homeboy Industries wildfires. It has helped Los Angeles communities (and people all over the world) in such powerful ways, and it stands as an example of what is possible when love & compassion are unstoppable.

All I have to say is, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Below are a few clips from the G-Dog documentary, and a few other videos that share the philosophy, work, and story of Homeboy Industries.

  1. Not all vids are viewable for me, saw some of it and am so impressed. Thank you for sharing! :) The world needs caring people who are also brave…

    • Hi Sita! :)
      I’m not sure why all videos weren’t viewable — but I’m glad you got to see one of them! :)
      I agree. The work he/they are doing is very brave — and very much needed.
      Love,
      Aimee
