We believe that giving back to the Latino community is an integral part of our mission.
As a Los Angeles company, we are proud to support Homeboy Industries, which provides hope, training and support to previously incarcerated and formerly gang-involved men and women in Los Angeles.
Homeboy Industries works to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being through its businesses.
By offering former gang members a place to work, Homeboy Industries provides a place for them to learn soft skills, like administration and customer service, and also vocational skills from solar panel installation to pastry baking or catering. These jobs in Homeboy Industries' social enterprises, often the first “legit” employment their clients have ever held, give their clients confidence and self esteem while enabling them to provide for their families.
The jobs clients have through Homeboy Industries social enterprises offer them alternatives to re-incarceration or a return to their former gang lives.
