Learning About Boundless Compassion …

“Redemption is possible, and it is the measure of a civilized society.”

– Father Greg Boyle

Earlier this week, members of our staff and several clients attended the King Institute for Faith and Culture’s event featuring Father Greg Boyle. He is the founder of Homeboy Industries, author of the 2010 New York Times bestseller “Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion,” and in 2014 the White House named Father Boyle a Champion of Change.

Father Boyle shared his experiences with Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world. In 1988, his parish began employing and training former gang members in a range of social enterprises, and they provide critical services to thousands of others in need.

We also had the immense pleasure of meeting Father Boyle, and our team left feeling inspired by his endless dedication and compassion to serve his community. #LoveRestores
