People screw up all the time. They’ll make a wrong choice. Do the wrong thing. Even slack off at work.
These poor decisions can infuriate leaders. To the point of wanting to give someone their pink slip.
But have you taken a step back to consider giving someone a second chance?
Father Gregory Brooks has. He’s the founder of Homeboy Industries.
Homeboy Industries has a mission to help felons recover and move onto meaningful employment. They also do gang-intervention programs that help people who have made bad choices move onto better lives.
Through Homeboy Industries, Father Brooks works with those who many others wouldn’t think about giving a second chance. They’ve done their crime, the felons should be on their own.
Instead, Brooks takes them in and gives them a second, and in some cases, more chances.
