How did it get started? Pastor Jim Ortiz started a bible study and 40 children showed up Street kids voted on the name “My Friend’s House” because it was the first time in their life they had found a friend Utilized resources like Jerry Morgan from JM Services/Construction, David Zepeda director of “Metro Impact” a social and economical umbrella section of My Friend’s House, and HUD’s nonprofit organization program to help rehab houses for low and medium income families

Did it Grow? Why? They grew from a small, 40 person, bible study into a community program that provided assistance to those in need and also refurbished 11 homes turning around almost 1 million dollars in low income housing Their growth was somewhat due to Ortiz’s associations with other local pastors and business people in for-profits that believed in the project as well
