Wow. i love going to the Jonah Project. They do such a good job of just reaching out to the people on Skid Row and ministering to them however they can. They seem to be very organized which is helpful for a more effective outreach with minimun chaos and such. I just love the heart behind the Jonah Project and I know that the people who run it have such a heart for the people down on Skid Row and just love them and everything that they do. It is an amazing, life-changing organization.

My Daughter is working at the Project and is really amazed at how impactful heir efforts are. Isn't amazing how a few $ and volunters can make a difference. Pant seed and someday mighty oaks grow. Seeds are cheap - plant lots.

I visited the Jonah Project with a group of friends from San Luis Obispo, where I live. It was worth a weekend trip! They are on the frontline of helping those in the depths of poverty, addiction, and hopelessness. The myriad of people in Skid Row create so many opportunities to help, but also many problems. They provide a relaxed, safe place where people can get off the streets during the day and have a meal, enjoy a conversation, and make a friend. Even more than that, the staff of the Jonah Project are dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs that are often neglected amongst the poor.

They also partner with dozens (at least) of ministries, churches, groups, and organizations, and this community creates opportunities for people from other areas to go work, volunteer, or simply visit and see what they do. This leads to many people getting involved in the rehabilitation of downtown LA. I know that their dedication inspired me to continue my inner city outreaches. The open mic night they threw this month was also a creative way to open up the venue to the community. They deserve all the help and support in the world and have done a great job with what they have. They should be open more hours each week and provide more services, and this would be possible with more funding.

Thanks for considering the Jonah Project, they rock!

I visited the Jonah Project while on a school missions trip, and the experience completely changed me. Interacting with the homeless on Skid Row opened my eyes to the struggle that thousands of people go through, and the work that the Jonah Project is doing to help them. While volunteering there I have fed, talked to, and prayed for numerous homeless individuals. The Jonah Project is an amazing organization, and I know for a fact I will be back to volunteer again.

I've been to the Jonah Project a couple of times and every time I go, I learn something new. Jonah Project really does help others and you can see it in the homeless people's faces as they lounge in the Jonah Project building. It's really their only safe place where they can relax. You can sense the love as soon as you walk in. God has really blessed the Jonah Project and with $5,000 they can really help make better the lives of the homeless.

I came to volunteer in Los Angeles for the month of November. My son Benjamin passed away a year ago, November 23, 2009. He was 10. I hadn't felt God's presence in a church service since the passing of my son. The evening I arrived in LA on a plane from the midwest, I headed down to skidrow with a group from the Dream Center to evangelize, walking through the streets. I was very frustrated with the lack of time for a real connection. That first Sunday, and subsequent weeks, I volunteered at the Jonah Project and loved it. I loved the atmosphere, they are accepting, all are welcome. I felt like if Jesus was going to physically come back and walk amongst us, that is one of the first places he would feel welcome. I don't think He would walk in and wonder what had become of His church... The Jonah Project strives to meet the needs of the whole person. They serve with a humble attitude, love people, treat them with dignity and respect. God's presence is evident there. I came in that first Sunday, expecting, who could I help, who could I be Jesus too. Instead, they were Jesus in the flesh to me.

I feel the Jonah Project is a very worthy organization. The desire of the the workers is to show the love of God to the residents of Skid Row in Los Angeles. They help meet the physical needs of the people by providing refuge, food, clothing, etc, while meeting their spiritual needs by preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. Their love and concern for the people of Skid Row is evident in all that they do.

The Jonah Project is a place of peace in a world of chaotic darkness. A place of shalom. When one walks into the Jonah project, there is an incredible sense of God's love being poured out by the volunteers there. It's almost like walking into a library, it's quiet, warm, and very inviting. Their mission is to be a place where God's love is made tangible to the people who come in contact with the Jonah Project. The staff at the Jonah Project seek to make everyone comfortable and to share the love of Christ by just listening and praying over people. When I helped at the Jonah Project I went out with a group of volunteers and we walked the streets of Skid Row praying over people and just listening to people. I would definitely recommend the Jonah Project as a place to go and just love people. Don't expect it to be a place where you are made the center by preaching the gospel to everyone you come in contact with, but that's not the true gospel. The gospel is to love these people and build relationships with them. The Jonah Project made that clear, their purpose is to build relationships with the people of Skid Row and through that bring the gospel into these people's lives.

The Jonah Project does an amazing work at Skidrow in Los Angeles. They provide food, cloth and hope for the people living on the streets. I have been down there and seeing their passion for the homeless people was one of the best experiences I had so far. The people in charge are the friendliest people I have ever met and they love serving.

I got a chance to volunteer with Jonah Project in Skid Row Los Angeles. We got to help hand out food, and serve the homeless. It was really cool being able to see just how they impact the community, and see just how they are working in areas of LA that no one else would even touch! It is such an honor being able to work with the Jonah Project.

I haven't had the chance to personally work with jonah Project, but i'm involved with the Dream Center who helps with their Organization. I have been down to skid row and worked with people living in the hotels who are struggling financially. I know the love and work the Dream Center displays when their reaching the hurting, I also know The Jonah Project shows the same kind of love, and that is the love of Christ! Theres so many hurting souls on skid row and The jonah project is one of the few who invest into them.

I had a wonderful time Last August to serve with the Jonah Project. I loved going out there and praying for those living out on the streets. This experience was a life changing for me. My heart was so broken to see how the leaders at the Jonah Project serve these people everyday. They give them fresh new clothes, pick up trash and give them a place to relax and worship.

I had the pleasure of serving with this organization. I found it to be a haven for peace and rest. I came to serve, but was served instead. The volunteers were very open and kind, sharing some invaluable insights into the needs of those in this inner-city setting. I was taught that the people here are best served by being treated as if they were no different than the people "serving." The only difference was that the workers for the Jonah project had a message that those who entered needed to hear. It wasn't necessarily through preaching that this was done, but in real conversations between real people in a real comfortable environment.

I brought a team of 15 people last summer to serve at the Jonah Project for two nights. The staff was very friendly and had a genuine passion to serve and connect with the people on Skid Row and was very helpful in making our volunteers feel welcome and needed.

Through their enthusiasm and passion for their work, our team was impacted and as we served, we felt just as blessed as the people we served.

Overall a great experience and I hope to take another team this summer.

This last January a few of my friends and I traveled down to Skid Row and had the privilege of staying at The Jonah Project. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by one of the staff members and given a detailed tour of the facility. The following morning, our team awoke to the sound of conversation and the aroma of coffee. Soon enough, a huge line of homeless people came bustling in through the doors in order to get a cup of coffee and some food. I took some time to talk to a couple of homeless men and asked them about how they felt about The Jonah Project. Both of them only had encouraging things to say about the project and explained that it was so great to have a safe place to hang out at that not only provided food and coffee, but the Word of God as well. As we were chatting, one of The Jonah Project's staff members, Jedidiah, got up in front of everyone and recited a poem and thoroughly explained the gospel message. It was incredibly evident that the folks who walked in through those doors that day were grateful for all the great things The Jonah Project was doing for them.

Unfortunately, my team only stayed for two nights, but although it was short, it was an awesome experience. All of us became very close with a few of the maintenance guys who worked there and stayed there at night. Everyone we met that weekend was so warm, hospitable, and in love with Jesus. In short, The Jonah Project is like a home away from home and I am eagerly anticipating my return next month.

I love The Jonah Project, they are seeing the need, filling the gap and showing the love of God. They are being a lighthouse amongst the smog! Lives are being changed down there, one day at a time.

From the physical of clothes being distrubuted, to giving out food and water, importantly meeting the spiritual needs, the preaching of the word, the music, the prayers etc The Jonah Project is doing amazing things. Faith without works is dead and The Jonah Project are living out God's Word.

I am encouraged by their commitment and obedience, the staff, volunteers and leadership are doing great things, it's such a blessing to be able to go down there and help out when I can.

They create an uplifting and non-judgmental atmosphere for those that need love and acceptance and HOPE. Going in, seeing people relax on the sofa's, people chatting, people watching tv, people listening to a sermon, with what they have been given The Jonah Project is using to the best of their ability and many are being blessed through this, lives are being changed.

Skid Row has been forsaken by many, but not by God who continues to move through people like Pastor Patrick, his wife and others who have been obedient to the call of God. God's AWESOME!

I went to the Jonah Project for the first time this last weekend and didn't know what to expect. I walked in off the chaotic skidrow into what I could only identify as the peace of God. I felt I entered a safe haven. Homeless men and women were relaxing in the warmth on sofas and listening to peaceful praise music. I was taken into "the closet", a room with donated clothes, and was able to help the men and women who needed clothes pick out outfits. It was such a blessing to come along side them and give them the dignity of "shopping" for clothes. It was great to see how the Jonah project is not only meeting the homeless' spiritual needs, but physical as well.

The Jonah Project seeks to meet the physical, emotional, social, and most importantly, the spiritual needs of the residents of Skid Row. They are a practical hands-on service that gets out of the comforts of an office, a cubicle, or a even a church and ministers one-on-one. My team was truly privileged to meet Patrick, Mary, and the other volunteers. They are positive, resourceful, and non-condemning. We were able to walk the streets handing out drinks and snacks. We were able to pick up trash off the desecrated sidewalks. We were able to pray and proclaim God's blessing over Skid Row and all the individuals that call it "home." There is a spirit of excellence in everything that the Jonah Project does. They create an uplifting and non-judgmental atmosphere for those that need love and acceptance and HOPE.

The Jonah project is a wonderful organization that is a shining light of the lord in such a dark place. They are such a great influence on the people around them and just their selflessness to give to the community in the way that they do like giving out clothes when its cold and providing shelter during their hours of operation and the whole place is run by such kindhearted people that want nothing else but to serve.

In the midst of chaos and pain, the Jonah project provides shelter for the hurting homeless. In the belly of the great fish, "Los Angeles" people come off the streets and into a house of love, where the peace of God is ever present. As a volunteer, I was able to walk around the streets of San Julian listening to the stories of the people there, and praying with the people that God loves. The Jonah project staff are very encouraging and did a great job in leading the 28 of us in caring for the homeless. Young high school students had an opportunity to learn and love on skid row, and I know they wouldn't have without the Jonah Project.

This weekend, I went with the high-school group from my church to visit the Jonah Project. What a blessing! I was so impressed by the hearts of the staff. They really were there because they want to see Los Angeles transformed- one soul at a time. I was encouraged by their commitment to love well. They really seek to serve their neighbors with respect and dignity, rather than just throwing hand-outs at people. If you are looking for a way to change the world, support this ministry. :)

The jonah project was awesome! As our group walked down skid row we were anxious to help and saw the need. It felt dark but we knew God was keeping us safe. As soon as we walked into the jonah project we felt an instant relief. As if God was there and working hard. It felt safe and very home-like. They definitely are being used by God in a huge manner.

I have seen the people who work for the Jonah Projects, primarily the leaders, and how the invest themselves in their work wholeheartedly. They are completely dedicated to the people they serve. They spend countless hours working to help their community. They enlist others who are like-minded to help with the work as well. I have dropped in The Jonah Project several times, on different days, at various times, and found their doors open and many people taking advantage of their services. Through The Jonah Project many people of the Skid Row area of Los Angeles have been given a place to get off the streets without being judged, get a meal, receive encouragement and guidance, as well as wholesome entertainment. The Jonah Project and its workers give of themselves selflessly like no other organization I know of. I sincerely appreciate them and the work they do for those who don't have the resources or ability to give back to them in return.

The Jonah Project is an amazing opportunity that I have known of since it was only in its beginning stages. This organization is very successful, not just at creating favorable statistics, but by actively participating in a revolution within the hearts of men and women on and off skid row. They are obedient to the convictions God places on their hearts, and that is the most important part of any ministry. I have not only heard of but seen first hand the staggering lack of love and the abundance of racism, substance abuse, gang violence and hate on skid row. Thanks to people like the ones working at the Jonah project hope is rising, even in the face of such great adversity. Skid Row has been forsaken by many, but not by God who continues to move through people like Pastor Patrick and Pastor Jedi and other small men and women serving a very big God.

i came from a small town in Wisconsin to minister to skid row. I wanted to do God's will. I was amazed at the people at the Jonah Project. They not only ministered to the people's spiritual needs but treated them with dignity and respect. Their testimonies were amazing. As I walked the streets among the people I saw hopelessness and addiction and the mentally ill. This is not the average person to show Christ to., but the workers there were overflowing with love for the people that only Christ can give. I would definitely go back someday God willing. God bless the Jonah project.

My youth group and I are from Canada.
We were originally planned to go to Ensenada, Mexico for our Missions Trip, but sadly we couldn't go. That's when we got a call saying that we could go to the LA Dream Center and we were PUMPED.
When we got there we didn't really know what to expect, but it was life changing. You always hear about places like Skid Row, but then you really experience it, and it's shocking. I didn't really know what to expect, but when I was there I was nervous, but soon it was chill & it was just so amazing being able to minister to all these people, and just to give them someone to talk to. I don't think there is anything better than helping someone out even if it's just giving them someone to talk to.
This experience really gave me new perspectives on life. : )

My youth group and I are from Canada, and we got the amazing experience to go and volunteer at the L.A. Dream Center. We got to work on Skid Row and the Jonah Project. It was an unbelievable experience, we all learned so much, and realized how thankful we are that God has blessed us so much in our lives. Working on Skid Row , I admit, made me nervous, but while we were walking down the streets, I realized that these people need our help, and the least we could do was give it to them. We prayed for them, gave them snacks, and invited them back to the dream center. I would reccomend the Jonah Project to anyone. It is an amazing organization who just wants to help as much as they can.

I've worked with the Jonah Project on several occasions, all on Skid Row here in Los Angeles, CA. The organization as a whole has one true, beating heart for the people on Skid Row. I've been involved in clothing drives as well as "singing in the streets", and as a regular volunteer with other organizations as well, I have to say that they are very well organized and look after the safety of their volunteers in this potentially dangerous environment. God definitely has its hand on this organization. I've seen the fruits and know that it is only because of their faithfulness and "Glory be to God" mentality. I love working with the Jonah Project, and will continue giving them my time and money. It is an honor and is very pleasing to the Lord.

Well im from Canada and i came to the Dream Centre on a missions trip on the first week of Decemeber with my team, and i got the chance to go on the Jonah project, as well as skid row, and my life was flipped right around, i never knew a place like this had ever existed, and it was just SOOO exciting to go around and talk with them, and maybe get a chance to pray over them and invite them to church, and when we went down there we even got a chance to dance with some locals down there with a boom-box, it was amazing!
This organization is one of the most incrediable works i have ever been apart of, its just so amazing, life changing, giving, passionate about what they do, and sooo much more, i would recommend this to organization to everyone!

The Jonah Project was simply amazing. I had the chance to be a friend to so many that didn't have many-if any at all. I was assigned to working in the "clothing store" as a greeter at the door. I introduced myself to most of them and asked to pray with them, and to my surprise, a TON of people came to me asking for prayer before I had a chance to ask them!! People like Jasmina, PJ, Manny, and Keith had amazing stories to share that touched my heart. I honestly could not find any faults in this program, I know their hearts desire to serve the people and glorify God while they're doing it.

My husband lived on Skid Row and remembers the Jonah Project. I have been researching skid row and I see the Jonah project always helping people. There are thousands more to be helped! Take it one day at a time. You are all doing a wonderful thing... these people have no where left to turn, their struggles are very real to them, no matter what they may be. There are people out there you know... they are real people with real feelings and real problems. They have no one, not even each other, it's like a war zone out there. This must be stopped in our country... but the answer is not to turn your back on these people, the answer is to look at them head on, ask each and every single one of them, what they need in their life... help them get it! Help the people in our country get to where they need to be. What would you do if you had no where to turn? You become homeless and eventually end up on skid row... not bad enough? Wait til the government says tell them to leave, push them out... does that solve the problem?? NO, this makes things worse... you can't shove homeless people away, they are still going to remain homeless, they need our help people! They need us, do something... write a congressman, start a blog, do something... we have to help one another! The jonah project wants to help!!! This is beautiful!!! Please be aware of SKID ROW and whats is going on there... what can you do to change the lives on skid row??

In such dark places like Skid Row there is a big need of a place that shines a light into the darkness. And that's exactly what the Jonah Project does.
I'm working at the Dream Center LA and because of that I've been down in Skid Row and at the Jonah Project almost every Saturday during the last six months and I got to know the Jonah Project as an organization that is not looking for it's own reward, or benefit or however you want to call it, but it has a burning heart for the hurting and the lost and of course for God. And it's the same with the workers and volunteers and the leadership at the Jonah Project.
