Dave Jones

Board Secretary
Weingart Center for the Homeless

Vice President
CH2M Hill

 Serving on the Board since 2010

 “Helping others in need has always been one of my core values.  Whether it’s family, friends or a passing stranger, there is nothing more personally gratifying.  With the largest homeless population in the US, the need for help in Los Angeles is tremendous.  I knew when I moved back to LA, I would continue to make aiding the homeless a priority in my life.   I wanted to do something meaningful but I did not know the best way.  The Weingart Center Association offers proven programs that seek to stop the cycle of homelessness and transition people into productive lives.  I am honored to be a part of this organization. The Weingart Center makes a difference.  I invite and encourage you to join me and the Weingart Center in our mission to end homelessness in L.A. It can happen if we all pitch in.”
