Ron Ruthruff

For the past twenty-six years, Ron Ruthruff has served homeless and street-involved youth and families in Seattle, providing case management services, designing programs, and educating the community on the issues that impact those who are labeled the least in our neighborhoods. Ron’s call is to empower individuals to live lives of significance, equip the church to love and serve their neighbors, and engage communities in cross-cultural and global conversations. Ron lectures on the psycho-social issues that impact this population internationally. Ron’s latest book is entitled The Least of These: Lessons Learned from Kids on the Street.
