Summary
Father Greg Boyle (G-Dog), a white Jesuit priest, has spent some 25 years in the toughest part of East LA, offering jobs not jail, to tough, street-smart young people, all former gang members. Father Boyle is a charismatic visionary, but he's made the dream real: his Homeboy Industries has become the largest, most successful gang intervention and rehab program in the U.S. "Nothing Stops a Bullet like a Job." With a 70% success rate at redirecting kids away from gang life, Homeboy Industries provides tattoo removal, job training, counseling, yoga, fatherhood and substance abuse classes -- all free. It's the one place in the 'hood' that turns lives around: swapping violence for community and building toward a future of hope
