Here, in the City of Angels [Los Angeles], Homegirl Cafe offers a unique dining experience with food prepared by former gang members gaining new skills. It's a haven for them, to be sure. But the popular cafe in the city's Chinatown is a special place for visitors, too, providing carefully crafted meals along with inspiration from ex- inmates who willingly tell stories about how they are seeking a better life. The hip cafe is an offshoot of the Homeboy Industries social enterprises founded by Jesuit priest Greg Boyle.

Global Good News is happy to share this inspiring story, but would encourage Jesuit priest Greg Boyle to have the former gang members learn Transcendental Meditation in addition to their anger management classes and drug treatment as it has proven very helpful in such situations.
