"Communities In Schools of Spokane County was very fortunate to receive training from your organization on human trafficking. The scope of the problem in Spokane County is enormous... One of the biggest impacts on my staff was the description of predatory behavior that takes place to literally capture these children when they are on the street... a major concern for all citizens, yet these children do not have a voice and so this problem goes on unabated... We have called on your organization multiple times and you always respond. Thanks for all you do for children." -Chuck Teegarden Executive Director - Communities in Schools
"Over the past several years, Pastor Tilbury and his wife, Bindi have been very gracious in accepting our invitation to present on their work to our senior nursingstudents at the WSU College of Nursing. Over 120 nursing students in Spokane, TriCities and Yakima all get to hear the riveting stories about how the Jonah Project,working with other local agencies and organization, reaches out a helping hand to turn lives around that would otherwise have been mired in hopelessness. Nurses are often a significant part of the front line in terms of recognizing and assisting victims of human trafficking. Your contributions help ensure that our students (and subsequent members of the nursing profession), will have the heightened awareness of the problem that can help lead to solutions." -Phyllis Eide WSU College of Nursing
"At Cup of Cool Water, we work with many youth who are experiencing homelessness. The youth who come into our drop-in center have experienced a great deal of trauma over the course of their lives and as long as the youth is on the street, he or she will continue to experience trauma, such as trafficking. I reached out to Aaron at the Jonah Project because although we are aware that many of our youth have been victims of trafficking, we may not be able to recognize the warning signs or have much of an understanding of how to support someone who has been trafficked.
Aaron painted a picture for us of those who have been trafficked, how to recognize someone who may be trafficked, a few questions we may be able to ask and he shared about how we could partner more actively with Jonah project. The volunteers who attended that training are better informed and have more of a clear idea of how and when to support a victim of trafficking.
We are so appreciative of this partnership and hope to continue working toward a common goal in service of vulnerable youth in Spokane." -Jeremy Clark Volunteer Coordinator - Cup of Cool Water
"As a pastor at a church in Garland District, and volunteer at a local homeless teen drop-in center I’ve been through Jonah Projects training on a couple of times. The information I received was eye-opening as to the atrocities that are happening in our city, but I was so grateful to Aaron and his team for their time, dedication, knowledge, and passion to bring light to the community about the realities of sex-trafficking. This training has benefited me as a pastor, community servant, and a father to a teenager daughter to be more aware of the signs and situations young people can find themselves in and how to be an advocate against it." -Jason Krauss Pastor - City Church
"My name is N- and I'm one of the seniors you recently spoke to at Gonzaga Prep. My ethics class often has speakers coming in to deliver a pitch for their organization and to hopefully inspire students. Many of the speeches are intended to reach the students and inspire empathy, but sometimes the speaker isn't able to. I don't believe this to be the case with your presentation... The manner in which you spoke helped reach the students in understanding the horrid reality that is sex trafficking...I seriously hope the Jonah project continues to thrive. -N Senior Gonzaga Prep
"I would like to personally thank you for coming to Mt. Spokane High School and changing the lives of so many of our students and staff members...When I learned about the Jonah Project I knew I wanted to find a way to educate our youth and bring awareness to the dangers of human trafficking. With the knowledge and hands on experience you shared, I have listened to students continuing conversations about this tragedy. I appreciated the way you brought awareness, ways to become advocates, and volunteer options for our students. You made each student realize that victims of such a horrible experience are human being and deserve to be treated like that. You taught our students how to think out of their comfort zones and realize that this is happening right here in Spokane. The dangers of the internet is real and it's vital that our young people know, for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I had a student come up to me and personally thank me for inviting you guys. They are now a part of our after school club and interested in participating in any way possible." -Paula Montgomery Registrar Mt. Spokane High School
