Adopt-A-Block is a community outreach of Jesus House. Adopt-A-Block activities take place every Saturday in the community 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, Jesus House sends out teams of 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 for us is that our very own resident-guests at Jesus House volunteer their own time to serve others!
Jesus House welcomes volunteers to help with Adopt-A-Block. However, all Adopt-A-Block volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
