Ivy Navarrete grew up in the Rampart District of Los Angeles and after years of running the streets, she found herself at Homeboy Industries in search of a second chance. She has been working at Homegirl Café since April 2011 and within months became a lead within the Farmers Market department. She has been clean and sober for eleven months now and has been helping other homegirls through their sobriety.
Ivy has been reunited with her three-year-old son and is working towards getting her own apartment and vehicle. She would like to pursue a career as a legal secretary.http://www.homegirlcafe.org
