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

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer on Skid Row at least twice a week. When I walk down the streets, I can't help but feel on edge. Everywhere I turn I see a different heartache and even more filth. The Jonah Project is the only place on Skid Row that I feel completely safe. The Pastors and volunteers have done an incredible job at creating a peaceful, comfortable, healthy, refreshing, and- above all- loving atmosphere. I've had multiple conversations with those who live on the streets, and they all share similar opinions. One woman said to me, "I go to the Jonah Project every time the doors are open; it's the only place my mind ever rests." It is so evident that the people not only have a deep appreciation for the organization, but they also highly respect the Pastors and volunteers at the site. Lives are being transformed because the Jonah Project chooses to operate out of excellency, integrity, and love. With more funding, the organization could make an even greater impact on the community.
