Father Gregory Boyle on our deep longing for community
“Gang violence is about a lethal absence of hope,” Father Gregory Boyle says. “Nobody has ever met a hopeful kid who joined a gang.”
Father Boyle is the founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. It includes a range of social enterprises created to employ and train former gang members and the 10,000 folks who walk in off the street every year seeking a better life. Besides job training, metal health and social services, the most important thing that Homeboy provides is hope.
