The Full Story

Our Mission Expanded

LifeHouse Foundation provides Transitional Housing.  We help those in need with safe, sober transitional homes, rebuilding lives and re-establishing relationships.  LifeHouse Foundation builds communities of like-minded people seeking to heal, grow and to strengthen new habits in managed homes that are safe to create healing, tranquil environments.  These family communities are the key to our success.

In response to the words of Jesus:  "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me." 


One of Mother Teresa's favorite texts is "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me" (Matthew 25:40, 45).


All human beings have the same inherent worth or value.  They all have the same nature; namely a human nature and are made in "the image of God" (Genesis 1:26-27). In that sense, all humans are equal.


The least of the brothers and sisters of Jesus are those persons who are vulnerable. They are the socially, psychologically or economically disadvantaged, such as the sick, the poor, the mentally and physically disabled.


Jesus cares about the needs of the poor.  Like Jesus, his followers should be concerned about the needs of the poor or underprivileged.  This is whom LifeHouse Foundation has set out to serve.

How we serve

We meet peoples most inate needs.  With solid programming found in Freedom Session and The Genesis Process, live in managers, comprehensive house rules, LifeHouse Foundation was born to meet peoples most primal needs by creating a restorative environment in a safe home.  We aim to restore hope.

Maslov has placed the need for safety just above physiological needs on his Hierarchy of Needs chart.  The need to feel safe, to have dependable, quality shelter and an environment that permits growth and the realization of the higher needs for love and esteem are all dependant on the basic needs for shelter, sleep, and clothing.  Realizing this, LifeHouse foundation was established to provide housing.  Quality housing in comfortable neighborhoods permit our people to realize their inherent value, to grow into more than they believed possible and to experience the dignity that all people deserve.


Why we serve

Simply put: We are commanded to:


  • Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, "Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you"—when you already have it with you. — Proverbs 3:27-28

  • Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. — Proverbs 31:8-9

  • Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life. — Proverbs 22:22-23

  • Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. — Isaiah 1:17

  • Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? — Isaiah 10:1-3

  • It is a sin to despise one’s neighbor, but blessed is the one who is kind to the needy. — Proverbs 14:21

  • There need be no poor people among you, for in the land the Lord your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you, if only you fully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today. — Deuteronomy 15:4-5

  • If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. — 1 John 3:17

  • A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. — Proverbs 11:25

  • Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. — Proverbs 14:31

  • And the word of the Lord came again to Zechariah: This is what the Lord Almighty said: “Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.” — Zechariah 7:8-10

  • Then Jesus said to his host . . . When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous. — Luke 14:14

  • “I have the right to do anything,” you say — but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything” — but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. — 1 Corinthians 10: 23-24

  • If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them. Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need. — Deuteronomy 15:7-8

  • “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” - Luke 6:38

  • The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. — Proverbs 22:9

  • Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. — Romans 12:11-13
