THE LIFE TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM.
THE FIRST SIX MONTHS - SAFETY, HEALING, & HOPE
The first six months of the recovery program are about safety, healing, and new hope. Many of our residents have just come from painful or traumatizing circumstances. One of the main goals of the first six months is to provide you with a safe environment, so you can take a breath and allow the healing process to begin.
Intake days and times are Monday through Thursday 9 am to 2 pm. Please call or email our Case Management Team to set up an initial phone screening at firstname.lastname@example.org or Call (405)232-7164 and ask to be connected to a case manager.
A TYPICAL DAY IN THE FIRST SIX MONTHS
For the first 6 months, you will spend eight hours a day doing different work therapy roles, including work in the warehouse, kitchen, cleaning crew, receptionist desk, or security. This period will also help you build routines, grow in service to the community and yourself, and develop control over your mind, body, and spirit. Those working in the warehouse serve the local community by sorting donations and providing free clothing. The kitchen cooks three meals a day for residents and additional meals for any person who comes to the Jesus House in need of a meal.
THROUGHOUT THE PROGRAM
A key component of the recovery program is regular meetings with a case manager, attending AA meetings, and working through the 12-step process throughout the first 9 months with a sponsor. A variety of other recovery and spiritual classes are also offered every day for you to attend. Jesus House partners with North Care to assist with any mental health or medication needs.
AFTER SIX MONTHS - GROWTH, LEARNING, & TRAINING
After six months, the program is all about exciting new growth, education, and training. The goal of our program is to transform your life entirely and aid your return into society. Of course, you won't be doing this alone! Working with a career transition specialist will be a big part of this phase. They will work with you to foster life long skills and tools to go back into the world. This phase will grow your professional skills and identify employment opportunities and help you secure them.
Daily Food Line/ Soup Kitchen.
365 days a year from 4-5 p.m. we serve a meal to the homeless or anyone that comes on the property. There are no questions asked.
Weekly Food Basket Program.
Every Wednesday at Jesus House, beginning at 8:30 am, we distribute food baskets to anyone that arrives in a vehicle with an ID.
Our Food Basket Program assists anyone that needs help with food. We strive for the basket to contain enough food for 2-4 people for 5-6 meals. The Food Basket has fresh produce, meat, and dairy products. We begin serving the community at 8:30 am and stop when we run out of food. We recommend you come earlier as individuals are here as early as 7:00 am to secure their spot.
STORIES OF TRANSFORMATION.
2021 JESUS HOUSE RECOVERY GRADUATE
"I immediately felt Jesus House was the place for me. My caseworker Stephanie is incredibly positive and spiritual in a way that is not suffocating or pressuring. I’m excited for the future - the future where I am not ‘drunk grandma.’ I always knew I was going to have to address my drinking, but I never seemed ready. When my daughter became emotional about my alcohol addiction, I knew it was time for me to deal with it. How much more time was I going to give this addiction? Wasn’t I tired of not having a better life?"
