Shayna Welcher

Shayna Welcher came to Homeboy Industries after being incarcerated. Her mother met Father Greg while she herself was in jail. Once Shayna was released, her mother brought her to Homeboy and Shayna started her journey working at Homegirl Café. Shayna has been clean and sober for over two years. After becoming a leader in the Café she would proudly show off her smile and good attitude to everyone she served.

In February 2011, Shayna flew the Homeboy Industries coop and began an externship at the Black Cat Café in the Miracle Mile. After three months, they hired Shayna as a full-time employee. Should you ever visit the Black Cat Café, Shayna is usually at the front register sharing her smile and enthusiasm with everyone in the place. She loves to recommend food and gets positive energy from her interactions with the customers.
