For participating in Homeboy 5K Run/Walk

Our story…

Please join us and support Homeboy Industries as we walk, run & roll to help them fulfill their mission of  “Jobs Not Jails.”

Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated people, allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.

Each year over 10,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change.  They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship, love and a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes.

Currently employment is offered for more than 180 men and women through a thoughtful, strategic 18-month program that focuses on healing just as much as it focuses on developing work readiness skills. Our overarching goal is to see individuals heal from trauma, allowing them to contribute fully to their family and community. The five key outcomes we strive for as an organization are: 1) Reduce recidivism, 2) Reduce substance abuse, 3) Improve social connectedness, 4) Improve housing safety and stability, and 5) Reunify families.

Kindness is the only strength there is.”
