Discover a Star Foundation Makes $25,000 Grant to Homeboy Industries

The Discover a Star Foundation has provided $25,000 to help Homeboy assist former gang members and previously incarcerated men and women transform their lives. Thanks to their support, we will be able to help more people like George, who described his change this way: “Today is different from the way I grew up. I didn't have role models to direct me on the right path. The consequence was that I lost my mother while I was in prison. I just recently forgave myself for that with help from my therapist and my sponsor. Now I'm training to be a wildland firefighter and I'm hungry for that. I've never been hungry for anything positive before. I'm a father to my kids. I'm a proud husband. I deal with my problems instead of running from them.”
