Review for The Jonah Project, El Segundo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with ministries and shelters who assist the homeless for several years, but never have I worked with such an amazing ministry to the homeless as The Jonah Project. They are the most effective and holistic homeless ministry I have ever seen. Not only do they provide the homeless with food, clothing, and shelter, but they give them a comfortable place to hang out, a wonderful church to be a part of, internet access, in depth personal counseling, solid spiritual discipleship, live worship music, and much more. They have integrated into the community of Skid Row more intimately and effectively than any other group I have ever seen. I recommend The Jonah Project wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to support an effective work in L.A.'s Skid Row.

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

Every year I take a group of young people to volunteer with The Jonah Project in order to learn from them how to effectively minister the Love of God and the Gospel to the homeless. The staff of The Jonah Project have always done an amazing job in teaching and empowering our young people to effectively love and help the homeless.

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

I would help them fully remodel their building. They have a huge facility to work with that has great potential, but only a portion of it is available for daily use. The rest of it still needs tons of remodeling, maintenance, and much more. It will probably take a couple of years to fully remodel the entire structure.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely
