Review for The Jonah Project, El Segundo, CA, USA
I love the Jonah Project. I met Jedi and Patrick when we first did 24 hours of love way back in the day about a year and a half ago. They are taking a different approach to helping the homeless. I mean, the people in skid rowe could get five meals a day if they wanted because there are so many different organizations, and teams that come down, especially on the weekends, to give food and minister. These people have heard the gospel and been preached at and talked to so many different times that they are probably sick of it.
So the Jonah Project takes a different approach. They really focus on building relationships and just being with the people. Their facility creates a safe place to be, hang out, talk and hear the word of God. Jedi, Patrick, Mary and the other people involved really focus on meeting the people and getting to know them on a deeper level, which is missed a lot when random churches come for a day or so.
They have become well known in the community and are donig quite well as a ministry.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
talking with the people on the streets. It's cool to hear someone say they know where the Jonah Project is when you ask them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Help them get more furniture in the building and add an upstairs room for people to sleep in.
