LOVE LIVES HERE.
Are you looking for an incredible and unique volunteer experience? Donate your time and skills at Jesus House! We would love to have you. We are a no-cost addiction recovery program for Oklahoma residents. We also serve the homeless and those in need by providing food and clothes.
Our team has experienced staff, volunteers, community partners, and donors who impact the lives of those in need every day. Many come to Jesus House for our free addiction program or in need of a hot meal and clothes.
As a Christian non-profit organization, we always strive to create an environment of acceptance, understanding, dedication, and love. Our motto is - Love Lives Here - and that extends to all our staff, volunteers, community partners, donors, and those we serve. If this sounds like a place for you, please review our guidelines and send us a message below!
Donation volunteers help us organize, categorize, and care for physical donations. If you have a keen eye for organization or structure, this is the place for you! These donations can include clothes, household items and more.
Kitchen & Dining
Our kitchen is always a busy place and requires volunteers with high energy. Usually, this is where our most social volunteers thrive. Kitchen and dining volunteers help the day to day maintenance and operations of the kitchen and dining room.
One of the most important aspects of Jesus House and what we aim to do is teach and foster those who need it most. Above all else, patience, kindness, and honesty are essential for being an education volunteer. Education volunteers may assist with literacy, GED classes, financial management, mentoring, ministry, or sponsorship.
Facility & Decor Care Volunteer
Jesus House resides in a historical school building from the 1940s, so we're always using unique methods to improve and refurbish. Facility and decor volunteers care for and maintain the facility, grounds, and decor. It's not uncommon for these volunteers to work on refurbishing, painting, and cleaning.
