About Jesus House

Jesus House is a no-cost, faith motivated nonprofit organization serving men and women in Oklahoma City who are addicted, homeless, and underprivileged. We are a dual-mission organization that offers a residential addiction-recovery program as well as hot meals and clothing for our homeless and low-income neighbors. We can treat 70 addiction recovery residents in-house, and our kitchen serves over 50,000 meals a year. Our warehouse facility is the center for community outreach, distributing groceries, and clothing to one of the most economically underprivileged neighborhoods in Oklahoma City.

Using the love of Jesus Christ as our example, our team of dedicated staff, volunteers, and addiction recovery residents serve the hurting, hungry, and hopeless in our community.


Jesus House opened in 1973 in a storefront building at Reno and Walker Avenues by Sister Ruth Wynne and Sister Betty Adams. Always on the front line providing those in need with food, clothing, shelter, and spiritual encouragement, Sister Ruth and Sister Betty laid the foundation for what is now a robust addiction and recovery program.

We inspire generosity to feed the hungry and provide hope for those suffering from addiction.

We envision the long-term empowerment of people through hope, recovery, and transformation.

We firmly believe in the healing power of a relationship with God made possible only by grace, through faith, in the finished work of Christ; and as a faith motivated organization, our fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity, genuine love, and Christ-like compassion in all we do.

We hold ourselves accountable for the quality and success of our programs, the stewardship of our resources, and the commitments made to our residents, volunteers, donors, and the community at large.

We maintain the highest standards of professional and ethical behavior, and we value transparency and honesty in our communications, relationships, and actions.

We value the unique and diverse talents, experiences, and perspectives of everyone, and treat our residents, volunteers, donors, and each other with sensitivity and respect.
