Mission
Jesus House is an inner-city, non-denominational Christian outreach providing food, shelter, clothing and assistance to the homeless and low-income families of Oklahoma City. Unlike any other outreach in Oklahoma, Jesus House services to the homeless are tailored for homeless persons with mental illness and addiction.

 

 

Background
Jesus House was founded in 1973 and remains an important ministry to the homeless and poverty stricken of Oklahoma City. Today's Jesus House continues the original mission of it's founders with new leadership and a revamped Board of Directors. Now more than ever, Jesus House of Oklahoma City stands committed to faithful service to helping the poverty stricken, addicted and mentally ill with a renewed commitment to biblical principles and stewardship. Jesus House is member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions.
Impact
Jesus House of Oklahoma City provides more than just shelter, meals and programs to our residents. We host a soup kitchen that serves well over 100,000 hot meals to the sheltered and unsheltered homeless every year.We hand out hundreds of food baskets to needy families each week. We operate a clothing ministry and distribute used furniture to persons in need. We also distribute food and personal hygiene items to the unsheltered homeless with our Street Ministry outreach. Jesus House also performs outreach to low income households with our Adopt-A-Block community outreach.
 
On the week of Thanksgiving, Jesus House distributes approximately 1,000 food baskets to low income families. Our Thanksgiving food baskets contain most of the ingredients to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner---including a frozen turkey. We also distribute special holiday food baskets to low income households at Christmas and Easter.
Needs
Jesus House is operated with funds donated by individual donors, churches and corporations. We receive no financial support from government or State programs. Our biggest need is financial support so that we may continue to provide programs that work for the homeless and low income families of Oklahoma City.

Description

The Jesus House Street Ministry Outreach delivers a hot, fresh breakfast each week to the unsheltered homeless. With a specialized ministry focus to homeless who are addicted and mentally ill, a majority of the unsheltered and chronic homeless on the streets meet our criteria for shelter services. For many unsheltered homeless, the uncertainty of shelter life, social anxieties and addiction drive a wedge between the prospect of shelter services and a desperate person in need of help. The Jesus House Street Ministry Outreach builds relationships with people we can help based on love, familiarity, friendship and encouragement.

 
The end result is that we connect with people we can serve and help them overcome the barriers of fear, uncertainty and doubt. On any given day, we have persons in our shelter program who used to be unsheltered by choice but who are now obtaining mental stability with available social services, making progress in addiction recovery and setting transitional goals that they never imagined possible.
 
Jesus House welcomes volunteers to help with Street Ministry Outreach. However, all Street Ministry Outreach volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
 
Adopt-A-Block is a community outreach of Jesus House with activities taking place every Saturday where Jesus House is located. In addition to being the roaming ground for many homeless, our neighborhood is one of the most economically depressed areas in Oklahoma City. Each Saturday, teams of our volunteers, including our own resident-guests, into the neighborhood to ask our neighbors, “How may we serve you?” We offer to take emergency food basket delivery orders, pray with people, fill clothing needs, paint over graffiti and serve our neighbors. While everything about Adopt-A-Block is special, the coolest part is that our very own resident-guests volunteer their own time to serve others! Jesus House welcomes volunteers to help with Adopt-A-Block but volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
While many people often think of Jesus House as only a homeless shelter, we offer so much more than shelter to the homeless. Our community outreaches assist hundreds of low income households in the Oklahoma City area and our soup kitchen feeds anyone who is hungry and not just the homeless. It is not uncommon to see a parent and children eating breakfast in our dining facility before school.

Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
In August 2010, the organization became immersed in scandal when an anonymous letter alleging financial misconduct was sent to the Oklahoma attorney general's office and local news organizations.  Subsequently, a new executive director was hired, the organization's by-laws were updated in accordance with new laws concerning non-profit organizations, and the board implemented new internal control procedures.  On January 9, 2012, the organization received a letter from the attorney general's office stating the organization had complied with its requirements and that the office had closed its examination.
