Homegirl Cafe, a division of Homeboy Industries, is a social enterprise assisting at-risk and formerly gang-involved young women and men to become contributing members of our community through training in restaurant service and culinary arts. Homegirl Cafe offers a one year training program within the food and service industry, empowering young people to redirect their lives and providing them with hope for their futures.

Training Program

As a working restaurant open to the City of Los Angeles, Homegirl Cafe serves as a training facility for our women and men to gain technical skills and develop a sense of self-empowerment through honest and meaningful employment.
One-year Training Program Includes:

•    Training areas of kitchen
•    Front of house hospitality
•    Barista
•    Gardening
•    Maintenance

A crucial component of the training program is an internship at a partnering restaurant, such as: Border Grill, BLD, Black Cat Bakery, and Greenleaf Gourmet ChopShop in Century City.


Homegirl Cafe and Homeboy Industries invite you to contribute tax-deductible financial support to help underwrite the many programs, services and job-training businesses.
