From The Streets To The Set 

Our group consists of formerly incarcerated individuals, former gang members, and other underrepresented people who share similar backgrounds, stories, trauma, and have been shut down by society.


With the opportunity that Anthony Gilardi and Richard Cabral have provided, we leave one Set behind and find opportunities "ON SET." We have found change, a chance to transform, a vision and have set our minds to turn our setbacks into comebacks with a purpose through the form of acting, all as ONE TEAM.



Homeboy Industries serves high-risk, formely gang-involved men and women with s continuum of free services and programs, and operates several social enterprises that serve as job-training sites.
