Homeboy Joy Ride

HomeBoy Industries, the focus of this film, is the living model of community and transformation. It is the starting point on a joy ride that takes people suffering from addiction, isolation, and marginalization to heaven on earth. This is where individuals come together to heal themselves and each other and rebuild their communities by finding meaning and purpose. The whole community is on a Joy Ride - a Homeboy Joy Ride. The film features personal accounts of men and women who have embraced recovery and a journey of hope and transformation.

“This place wants to stand against forgetting that we belong to each other. It’s at the root of all things wrong with the world. It’s born of the notion that there might be lives out there that matter less than other lives.”  —Father Greg Boyle, Founder, Homeboy Industries

 “The film is about human ecology, personal dignity combined with recovery skills, meaningful employment training and renewed social engagement. All of this combines to bring recovery to those who our society has given up to the "untouchables" of our society." Ed Reading, Ph.D, of the Matt Talbot Treatment Center, Toms River, NJ
