The Jonah Project is an amazing organization that really invests everything that they have into the streets of skid row. They do their best bringing hope back into that hopeless place. And they are so persistent in loving these people, it blows my mind. I have served with them for a year and the things I have experienced are crazy. And they have been doing this for years now. The Jonah Project is really the oasis of Skid Row, and they are serving these homeless people and drug addicts with so much endurance and with really a 'supernatural' love. they amaze me. Respect.

I go down to the Jonah Project 2 times a week.
It is amazing what they do, and with what love and compassion they serve the people on skid row. The Jonah project is really a light down in the dark allies of skid row. It really gives people hope again. It shows that they are loved, and not forgotten.

This non profit truly changed my life. I got a new perspective on how people in skid row live and if the Jonah Project is willing to be down their 24/7, that shows true commitment and character. God is doing his work through these people and making a difference. They are incredible!

The Jonas Project has changed mine and the whole youth ministry at Knott Avenue Christian Church's perspective of heart. We all now realize that God has really come down on the Jonah Project and provided love. We all can't wait to go back and sing Happy Birthday songs, Serve Food, and help clean up the community :]

Jonah Project touches many people on the streets of Los Angeles...they are reaching out to the people that many would count out but not due to this team. I have seen them in action and they are making such a great impact on their area. One day because of their efforts skid row will no longer be homeless, but fully residential. And it is because of people like this.

Our youth group Rise Up volunteered this past Saturday with the Jonah Project. It was an amazing experience in more ways than one. The Jonah Project has a great urban, artsy feel inside, and is a place of belonging for many. Many of our youth were witnessing skid row and the vastness of homelessness for the first time. The Jonah project daily makes a difference by cleaning trash from Skid Row, providing a warm meal, a new fresh change of clothing, and most importantly they share Christ's love with those in hard situations. It was eye opening and challenging to know that we were impacting people for one day, but the Jonah Project does this on a daily basis as their mission. The Jonah project is a home for those that don't have one, and they are family to many who don't have any. They are doing amazing sacrificial work among the streets of Skid Row.

The Jonah Project was awesome! I loved serving there and I loved helping out Patrick and the gang. From handing out food, cleaning up trash on the streets, and just building relationships with the people on skid row, the Jonah Project is really making a positive difference in the LA community

They are doing something different! They have a worker sleeping on the street to know what the real needs are. This is something that is needed. Finding the need and fulfilling that need. They are also connected with the Dream Center, so the homeless have a place to go if they do not want to be homeless anymore.

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 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.
