You can help homeless people survive, find housing and rebuild their lives, learn more at


Our mission is to create communities of unconditional love, support and hope for the homeless as we work together to prevent and ultimately end homelessness.

Rather than relying on government funding or creating redundant services, Joppa collaborates with other agencies, helps people access resources, and develops unique programs that fill gaps and meet unmet needs in outreach, housing and education.

Outreach: Survival, Support & Hope
Housing: Tiny Homes & Uniquely Affordable Cottages
Education: Joppa KIDS Making a Difference

Each week, Joppa volunteers visit 200 – 225 people living under bridges, in tents, vehicles and recently off the streets.

Joppa depends entirely on private donations from individuals, families, churches, sponsors and other organizations. As a result of this support, Joppa has helped over 300 men, women and children get off the streets since 2008, 86% remain in housing today.

Joppa is a local, volunteer-driven organization with less than 5% administrative costs which means 95% of each gift benefits the people most in need right here in our community.

Mormon Stories #691: Noah Rasheta, Founder of Pt. 1 – Noah’s Story

Views:4546|Rating:4.72|View Time:1:30:43Minutes|Likes:34|Dislikes:2
Noah Rasheta is the CEO of iStabilizer, and the founder of Secular Buddhism podcast.

Noah was raised in the LDS church with a U.S.-born father and a Mexican-born mother – living many years of his life both in Mexico and in the United States. Noah served an LDS mission and was married in an LDS temple to his wife, Giselle. Several years ago Noah experienced a major betrayal of trust by a loved one, which led to a deep exploration of Joseph Smith, LDS Church doctrine, and LDS Church history. By the end of his exploration, Noah lost his belief in fundamental LDS Church doctrine and truth claims, but found great solace and strength in the teachings of secular Buddhism.

Today Noah remains semi-active in the LDS church as part of a mixed-faith marriage, and teaches the principles of Secular Buddhism via his podcast, his new book, and occasional workshops. For those seeking to either supplement or replace LDS-based spirituality, or who are looking for a fabulous framework for positive mental health and well-being (before, during, or after a religious faith crisis) the teachings of Secular Buddhism can be extremely valuable for you.

Telling Warrior Stories with Hula

Views:1017326|Rating:4.96|View Time:3:21Minutes|Likes:17311|Dislikes:153
A common misconception about hula is that it’s a dance tradition strictly for women. Nope. In ancient Hawai’i, men were the first to dance hula, and the best dancers were even chosen to become warriors. Today, Ke Kai O Kahiki—one of Hawai’i’s most famous male hula schools—is carrying on this tradition by telling warrior stories with dance. To do so, dancers train in the same way as their ancient forbearers, using the land itself as a harsh and unforgiving gym. To dance like a warrior, you need to train like one.

Mormon Stories #632: Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees Pt. 2 — Struggling with Fame and Authenticity

Views:15006|Rating:4.62|View Time:1:56:8Minutes|Likes:123|Dislikes:10
Tyler Glenn is best known as the lead singer of the multi-platinum alternative pop band Neon Trees.

Tyler was raised LDS/Mormon in Temecula, California. After discovering a love for music in high school and serving an LDS mission, Tyler moved to Provo, UT with his buddy Chris to form Neon Trees (named after the trees on the In and Out signs). Neon Trees signed with Mercury Records in 2009 and went on to release three successful alternative pop albums: Habits (2010), Picture Show (2012), and Pop Psychology (2014).

Tyler knew he was gay as a child, but struggled as a teen and adult to reconcile his sexuality with his LDS faith. These struggles took Tyler to some sad/dark places, which were only exacerbated by his fame as a pop star. At age 27 (around the release of Picture Show), Tyler seriously contemplated ending his life.

In spite of these struggles, Tyler remained a full and literal believer in the LDS Church. In 2014 Tyler decided that being a closeted gay man was contributing to his suicidality. Consequently he came out as gay to his family, band, friends — and to the world in Rolling Stone magazine — prior to the release of Pop Psychology. From this point forward it was Tyler’s full intent to find and marry a gay man, and to raise children in the LDS church as a gay married Mormon.

Then, in November of 2015, the LDS church released its new policy branding same-sex married Mormons as immediate apostates, and prohibiting children of same-sex married couples from being baptized. This policy change sent Tyler into a tailspin, ultimately shattering his plans as a believing, gay Mormon.

In this three part interview, we explore:

Part 1: Tyler’s early years as a young Mormon struggling with his sexuality.
Part 2: Tyler’s ascent (along with Neon Trees) into stardom…and the sadness/despair that followed.
Part 3: Tyler’s faith crisis instigated by the LDS policy change, along with his current beliefs/views regarding the LDS Church.
