Discover Los Angeles
Based in Downtown L.A., Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world. As a Jesuit priest, Father Boyle has dedicated his life to helping those in need. In 1986 he was appointed pastor of Dolores Mission Church in Los Angeles, at the time the poorest Catholic parish in the city, located amidst two large public housing projects and the territory of numerous rival gangs.
Diners can find a healthful meal at nearly any Los Angeles restaurant, but it's easier at the spots that emphasize local produce and sustainable meats and fish. These restaurants may have varying philosophies, yet all offer a chance to experience exciting tastes and lighter preparations.
