This is a critical service and entry point for many clients. Visible gang tattoos are a major barrier to entry in employment and education, and our clients often hope to remove them to set an example for their children.
Employment counselors at Homeboy play an important role as they act as intermediaries between employers, trainees and community clients.
All trainees at Homeboy Industries are immediately placed with a case manager who helps them to create a goal-oriented service plan, guides their progress through necessary services, and holds them accountable as they move toward a better life.
