Jana is an absolute wonder! I join Jana's groups whenever I can, finding comfort in her words, her compassion, her humor and her enormous heart. She has helped me change the way I feel about myself and my spirituality. Jana is a beacon of light and warmth in a city that can leave many in the cold. Her work with the homeless, with the abused, with the poor, with those who otherwise would be alone - her tireless work is a great, great inspiration to many.

Message from Carla I go to Jana's groups whenever I can...they are really helpful for lessening my stress and help me to feel happier about my life. My favorite is the garden group because it's outdoors with beautiful plants, dogs and chickens.

I met Jana while marching in an anti-war demonstration in San Francisco. I decided to look her up when I had the opportunity. I discovered that she was deeply involved in working with the seriously neglected and disenfranchised community of people living the Tenderloin. She connects with people in a way that fosters trust. Her plethora of life experiences gives her a crediblity and one understands instantly that she's the real thing. I make a solemn vow to Jana Draka.
