Our Bible Study group was studying about Jonah and we wanted to go to help people in need. We went to Hope of the Valley on 3/7/19 to serve lunch. It was a wonderful experience. The people--guests, servers, helpers and organizers were all terrific people and we were the ones who benefited from the experience. We are now organizing efforts to provide men's clothing for the facility. My husband and I already support Hope of the Valley and appreciate what they do for people.

I came down with Xperi Corp from Calabasas. We helped distribute sanitary and food bags. Then we helped feed guests in the Chapel. It was a great experience.

We've volunteered for a day to make hygiene and lunch kits. We distributed them along with other food to people. The look of gratitude on their faces was the most valuable thing I have ever received. If I lived in California I would volunteer here often no second thoughts.

My Bible Study group had an amazing time today. We were able to serve lunch to Hope of the Valley’s approximately 170 guests. There was a short message by one of their Pastors about God’s love for us and then we served a hot lunch to everyone there. It was a very smooth operation and the guests were very nice and appreciative. The love of God is well represented by this organization!

I volunteered here with my bible study group. It was such a beautiful experience. Everybody who works here is so loving and helpful. I had the privilege to serve hot food to many guests and in return was blessed with warm smiles. I highly recommend spending time here.

Was a positive and educational experience as a chaperone for our school volunteering to serve food and give love to our homeless. Jonathan was full of love and inspiration as he guided us through the day. His passion for his work to help and encourage the homeless is admirable. The kids at our school felt a sense of pride and humility as they served food and talked to the people there. They were amazed at how grateful and kind the homeless people were. They left with a desire to serve more. We will most definitely return. Hope of the Valley is doing a great service with a supportive and caring staff. Thank you!!

I had a great day at Hope of the Valley. I interacted with some of the nicest homeless people I've ever met. I was serving food to people and they were saying how much of a blessing our school was. I finally noticed that they were just like normal people and want the same desires as all of us.

I have come to volunteer for the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission for two years in a row now, and for each time I’m taken aback by the kindness and genunuity of all the people here. Even if you haven’t been before or haven’t done something like volunteering, it feels like a very safe place where love really does flow through the walls of this place.
