Hollywood Pres has a intentional living community called DOOR. Residents commit to a year of service and training, partnering with charity and social justice communities in the Hollywood area such as PATH and My Friends Place.
They are having a special event with Homeboy Industries.
This is a great opportunity for us All Saints kids to get exposed to HomeBoy Industries and to make connections with other young people working and living the Christian faith in Hollywood.
The D.O.O.R. Hollywood dwellers would like to invite you to the first of many special events featuring guests that have a desire to support La Casa de la Comunidad. Our hope at La Casa de la Communidad is to unite our neighborhood and surrounding area in a way that buil…ds a community of partners with a mutual desire to bridge the needs and resources of our community. If we can gather together, share our stories, and learn from each other, we will create a community of awareness that allows us to know our neighbors, meet the needs of the community, and share available resources. Homeboy Industries assists at-risk and formerly gang involved youth to become positive and contributing members of society. Father Gregory Boyle recently outlined many of the stories of the ministry in his book, “Tattoos From the Heart.” COME HEAR STORIES, ASK QUESTIONS, AND BE CHANGED Light refreshments supporting Homeboy Bakery will be provided.
Later in the year, we’ll be forming a small group to read Tattoos on the Heart and going on a field trip to Homeboy Cafe. So come get this unique sneak peak into the heart of many different organizations working together in LA.
