Once a year, our homeboys and homegirls get to dress up and attend our Annual Lo Máximo Awards. For many, it is symbolic of the life change they're experiencing in this place, as they take on these new and redeemed selves. Here's a behind-the-scenes peak at preparation for our awards last weekend!
Located in downtown Los Angeles, Homeboy Industries provides hope and job training for formerly gang involved and previously incarcerated men and women so they can redirect their lives and become contributing members of society. By utilizing a combination of donations and social enterprises, Homeboy Industries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose innovative model of therapeutic wraparound services has helped the organization become one of the most successful reentry programs in the United States.
