What is Homeboy Industries?
Father Gregory Boyle: Homeboy is the same principle as drug addiction. Rehab is not for those who need it, but it is for those who want it. So a lot of people need it, but we don’t coerce people to come here in the same way you wouldn’t with drug rehabs. You know, do people want it and it takes what it takes in recovery. .You know it’s something that turns the light switch on, but nobody can do that for anybody else. You just have to get to a place where it makes sense to walk towards the light or walk towards health.
