Description:

The Jesus House recovery program is specifically tailored to meet the needs of men and women who are experiencing homelessness, mental illness and addiction.  We also offer cold weather shelter on a night-to-night basis for up to 15 additional male guests during the winter and at times of inclement weather.  All resident-guests must be at least 18 years of age.

Jesus House is an inner city, non-denominational, non-profit Christian outreach providing shelter, food, clothing, and love to the community's homeless and poverty stricken.

Jesus House is more than an emergency shelter providing refuge to the homeless who are mentally ill and addicted. The Jesus House soup kitchen serves approximately 100,000 hot and nutritious meals each year to the homeless of Oklahoma City. The Jesus House food basket outreach distributes hundreds of shopping carts loaded with essential grocery items to poverty stricken households each week. The Jesus House clothing and used furniture ministry provides hundreds of articles of clothing and household items to the people in need every week. And the Jesus House street ministry outreach delivers a hot, fresh breakfast each week to the unsheltered homeless where they are on the street with fellowship and encouragement to forsake the street for programs that work. At Jesus House, our mission is love. Love lives here.

The Jesus House Life Transformation Program
Our recovery program is a goals based program which focuses on connecting our resident-guests with the medical and social services they need in a spiritually encouraging environment which promotes sobriety, mental stability, accountability and eventually transition to a life of new opportunities.  We work with numerous partner ministries and community service organizations to connect our resident-guests to services and benefits such as medical care, prescription assistance, counseling, life-skills classes, legal assistance, social security benefits, identification assistance, financial responsibility classes, job skills, GED assistance, employment and eventually housing.  We are also a host site for numerous, daily drug and alcohol recovery and support group meetings.

The duration of the recovery program varies from one resident-guest to the next.  Although 12 months is what we would consider the typical duration of a successful shelter program stay, the circumstances and goals of each resident-guest always vary from one to the next.  Additionally, difficulties in maintaining sobriety can provide setbacks and multiple shelter program stays may be necessary.

Once our resident-guests graduate, they move to housing which they secure while completing the Life Transformation Program at Jesus House.  Housing options after graduation can range from apartments or houses or accommodations with one of our strategic partners providing transitional housing, such as Hope House OKC or The Pershing Center

Recovery Hope Transformation

Our motto at Jesus House is “Recovery, Hope, Transformation.”  Our welcoming atmosphere and philosophy of meeting people where they are with the unconditional love of Christ keeps our program beds full most of the time and our resident-guests positive.  We offer numerous spiritual based programs and classes and an on-site chapel service on Sundays.  Attendance at any spiritual program or class is voluntary and is always at the choice of the resident-guest.
