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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been to Downtown LA, specifically Skid Row/Herion Alley many times during both the day and the night. When I first started visiting those areas of downtown with the Dream Center, there were only the missions to help the people living on the streets. Then came the Jonah Project like a bright light was just turned on in a dark room. The Jonah Project gives hope to thousands of people each week who come and stop by. It offers others a safe refuge, an acknowledging and uplifting atmosphere, and loving people. People can play piano, just hang out on couches, talk and eat, do whatever they want to do. Jonah Project is a great place for people to come who are wanting more than drugs, alcohol, and sex. They are searching for meaning and purpose. And the Jonah Project offers just that - a way to connect with people who can help them. I strongly suggest everyone check out the Jonah Project - you are sure to leave inspire and in awe.

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

a way that opened my eyes to how I can do something where I am about the about of poverty and addiction on the streets. I learned this from being in the Jonah Project multiple times.

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

love for it to be expanded so that more people could be helped.
