In providing employment services, Homeboy targets and focuses on the segment of the community that finds it the most difficult to secure employment on their own -- former gang members, parolees, and at-risk youth. Programs offer a much-needed intervention to those who deserve a second chance at life. Homeboy Industries first venture was The Homeboy Bakery which trained many gang members to become scratch bakers. Homeboy Industries has subsequently launched several additional income-producing ventures which are still thriving. This collection consists primarily of correspondence written by Homeboy clients and family members to Homeboy founder Father Greg Boyle. There are also administrative records and Father Boyle's personal papers. The collection also includes an assortment of audiovisual material.
