Pastor Patrick and Mary are amazing and what they are doing are amazing to help bring hope to broken and hurting lives in skid row. Jonah Project is doing a great job and their heart is to help bring restoration to skid row by what they are doing. Simply amazing place of transformation and a place of refuge for people to chill where people can come in at any hour of the day and sit on the couch, enjoy a meal or hear bible studies.

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

bringing people off the streets into our recovery home at the dream center.

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

give them more money so they can continue to help more people with more programs.

I had the opportunity to volunteer at the jonah project last summer for two nights! the expirience changed my life and how i look at people forever! they are showing love to the most forgotten people in our entire country! and helping them to survive and have a much better quality of life as well as a chance to hear the gospel of Christ! after the short time i spent at the jonah project i was so moved by their compassion that I have since become in a local rescue mission in huntington IN called the Malta house. I am the program director here and get to help out people who need it most and deserve it most too! i am so thankful for what they are doing at the jonah project and am so excited that i get to visit them this july again!! they are a wonderful group of people!!!

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

being able to carry on their mission locally

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

increase security for younger volunteers

For 23 years, I have answered God's call to serve and love those in need that are poor or disenfranchised in our inner cities. In that time frame, there have been very few organizations that can match the dedication shown by the Jonah Project. Patrick and his wife continue to bring the light and love of Christ into the streets of East Central Los Angeles, Skid Row! Let me assure you that there is no greater concentration of need in the United States and to take a stand like the Jonah Project has is no small feat of courage and love. I enjoy the Partnership that I have with this great ministry and when the Father calls me to serve the Holy Ground that is Skid Row, I know I will find the impact of the Jonah Project's labors when I arrive. They truly make a difference in this world that is undeniable.

You cannot miss the impact of this organization on Skid Row in Los Angeles. They continue to show up as a beacon of light and love in what I consider the epicenter of missionary efforts in the inner cities of the United States. Their approach of continuously bringing love into the lives of so many that have given up on themselves works effectively, allowing dignity of those in need to be restored.

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

In the efforts that both Patrick and I lead in our separate organizations we must take our guidance from the Father and it is clear that he is doing that with the Jonah Project as I do with the Deep Waters Foundation.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?
