Please join us for Lo Maximo 2014 on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The annual awards and dinner celebration applauds the accomplishments and transformational work of the formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women who walk through Homeboy Industries’ doors each year.

This year’s honorees include Congressman Tony Cárdenas, a long-time advocate for Homeboy Industries’ model of gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry services. We’ll also celebrate longtime volunteer Janet Garrison’s commitment to the homeboys and homegirls. And our 2014 Homeboy Heroes are program graduates Jose Rodríguez and Andre Hollins.

When you support Lo Maximo, you are helping men and women change from their former lives of crime, violence, and substance abuse. Your participation directly funds Homeboy’s 18-month training program. This program provides a job, training and free support services to our trainees, helping them to lead more productive lives, building healthier communities and a safer Los Angeles.

When you support Homeboy Industries, you invest in hope. You connect with people whom Martin Luther King called “the least, the last, and the lost.” And you become part of their journey from the margins of society to a life of meaning and fulfillment.

As Homeboy Industries leaves behind its 25th year anniversary and looks forward, your support ensures that we can continue to receive the thousands of men and women who will cross our threshold this year to re-identify who they are in the world.

Be a part of Lo Maximo 2014 and help us continue to help them.

We hope to see you on May 3rd!
Chris Weitz Mercedes Martinez
