ABOUT JESUS HOUSE
MISSION, VISION & HISTORY.
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.
Jesus House opened in 1973 in a storefront building at Reno and Walker Avenues by Sister Ruth Wynne and Sister Betty Adams. In the early years, our location often changed. Still, Jesus House was always on the front line providing those in need with food, clothing, shelter, and spiritual encouragement. We have no profit motive, only a strong desire to meet the needs of our suffering neighbors and help those who have nowhere else to turn. Love has always and will continue to live here!
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-based 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.
