GOOD MORNING SKID ROW !
My name is Gary Boatwright. My street name is "$2 Short", because I'm always $2 short of a nickle bag, which also just happens to be my panning hustle. The Jonah Project is one of perhaps two or three honest facilities genuinely attempting to help homeless Americans on skid row.
As a general rule we have three primary enemies. In no particular order they are: other homeless Americans, people pretending to help homeless Americans and Cops. Skid Row is probably the largest outdoor insane asylum in America. The Jonah Project provides a brief respite from the madness that is colloquially known as Skid Row. For that simple blessing many of us are genuinely grateful.

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

Assisting me on my lifelong quest. I'm not certain exactly what I'm searching for, but we are all searching for something. If I never find it, the Jonah Project has helped me enjoy and learn from my journey.

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

Move back to the old location at 6th and Crocker and serve all the coffee anyone could drink 24 hours a day. It would be very nice if it was as easy to get a $2 cup of coffee as it is a $2 bag of crack.
