HELPING – Save Homeboy Industries

YouTube Preview Image
As explained in the video above, Homeboy Industries is struggling to survive during a tough economy which has left even the most stable of businesses hard hit.

If you would like to help Homeboy, vote online at the Chase Community Giving Facebook page to make them eligible for $250,000 in funding. If you’d rather get involved and donate directly, contact them through their web site or just go to the Homegirl Cafe for lunch and spend some dough!!!

Homeboy Industries provides comprehensive job training, job development, social and educational support services, all offered free of charge, to the most disenfranchised segment of our community, formerly gang affiliated youth, parolees, the under-educated and poor. Homeboy Industries is a beacon of hope and opportunity for those seeking to leave gang life, for whom the barriers and challenges are great, and for whom there is virtually no other avenue to have a second chance to enter the mainstream of society.

    This is a wonderful but sad story because of the funding issues. I live in Canada but I am sending it to all my Canadian and American friends and relatives, hoping we can help in some small way…………we are our brothers and sisters keepers!

    I voted for Homeboy Industries and sent out the word to a lot of folks who went to school with Father Greg and now Homeboy Industries is no longer available for voting.

    What gives?

  3. Jill says:

    I went to the chase site to vote but couldn’t find them listed under homeboy industries. Would they be under something else?

  4. Joel says:

    The Chase website says “Voting Closed”, and Homeboy Industries was never listed.
