I was so blessed serving and loving people at the Jonah Project. This was our second trip to LA. All the high school students I work with loved going back. We served food, picked up garbage, shared listened and talked and prayed for people, sorted cloths, had had the time of our life. God is using the leadership of The Jonah Project to heal, and bring Jesus' love to this community.

I have been at the Jonah Project a couple of times during my five months in LA and I am just so impressed of the work they are doing there. I had the amazing oppertunity to spend Thanks Giving with the Ersige´s family (the family who started and run the Jonah project) and at the house I met a man named Carlos. And Carlos told me his story and how he used to live on streets of skidrow and that his life is completely changed because of the Jonah-Project. They showed him Jesus´s love and that loved changed him. The Jonah-project are so loving, I´v never seen anything like it in my life, to be honest. They gave up there lives to life for the poor and homeless people in the innercity of LA, and they are making a huge diferens there!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Talking to the poeple who´s life has being changed by the jonah-project! Giving the people on the street a meaning in life again!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

That they would have more workers and more money.

I volunteer on Skid Row at least twice a week. When I walk down the streets, I can't help but feel on edge. Everywhere I turn I see a different heartache and even more filth. The Jonah Project is the only place on Skid Row that I feel completely safe. The Pastors and volunteers have done an incredible job at creating a peaceful, comfortable, healthy, refreshing, and- above all- loving atmosphere. I've had multiple conversations with those who live on the streets, and they all share similar opinions. One woman said to me, "I go to the Jonah Project every time the doors are open; it's the only place my mind ever rests." It is so evident that the people not only have a deep appreciation for the organization, but they also highly respect the Pastors and volunteers at the site. Lives are being transformed because the Jonah Project chooses to operate out of excellency, integrity, and love. With more funding, the organization could make an even greater impact on the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen results in seeing lives changed. People always want to come back and are progressively changing and trying to better themselves.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The organization simply needs more funding.
