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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Jonah Project is truly a gift from God, and I am so honored that I was able to spend time there, meeting some of the awesome volunteers who spend their days bringing hope and inspiration to those in dire need. The JP provides a safe place for residents of Skid Row to enter and be greeted with food, warmth, clothing, a place to sit and rest, and spiritual healing. Upon our arrival with a truck full of clothing to donate, we were greeted by various helpers as well as residents of Skid Row, all who were looking after one another. Men gathered bags and boxes from our car and immediately started digging through clothing, and when they saw jeans or other items they knew a fellow resident needed, they called that person over and made sure it made it to him. There is a lot of "looking out" here at Jonah Project - not solely the volunteers serving, but the residents looking out for one another as well. That is what The Jonah Project inspires - support for one another, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I feel honored to have been called to the JP and pray for continued blessings to everyone involved.

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

Being there first hand to see how clothing is distributed and made available for residents in need.

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

Make it easier (via sign of some sort) for volunteers to find. The new location was more difficult to spot than the previous location.

Role:  Volunteer & My husband and I headed a clothing drive for the residents at Jonah Project.
