We train and provide employment to people with a prison past and a bright hospitality future.

 
 
 

We are a social business

Trade School Industries is a social business and a therapeutic community giving ex prisoners the chance to turn their lives around through employment. It’s a proven solution to a difficult problem. Our goal is to run a sustainable company that reduces recidivism and therefore creates a win/win for the person, their community as well as our country.

 

It both saves lives, relationships and tax-payer dollars while also building lives, relationships, communities and our economy.

Your support makes a world of difference and it’s as simple as starting with a cup of coffee.

 
 
 

Cafe

Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.

Homegirl Café & Catering is one of Homeboy’s six social enterprises, where young men and women are placed in what is often their first “real job,” learning to work side by side with their former enemies and gaining

fundamental job skills in a supportive environment.The café assists high-risk and formerly gang-involved young women, and a few young men to become contributing members of our community through training in restaurant service and culinary arts. Homegirl Café has an 18-month training certificate program that empowers women to support themselves and their families while receiving needed services as they work toward a better life.

 
 

Trainees cycle through three stations; café, catering, and garden & maintenance, while regularly meeting with their case manager to address underlying needs
