Criminal Justice and Mercy Ministries
a ministry of the Oklahoma Conference of The United Methodist Church

Exodus House is a six-month temporary residential project. These are small apartment complexes where people newly released from prison can live with their families while they re-enter life successfully outside prison walls. Leaders say those who take this route rarely return to prison.

The furnished apartment, complete with linens, cooking and eating utensils, is provided free of charge, except for the cost of electricity. Residents stay for a limited time and are permitted to take all the apartment's contents
when they move.
Exodus Houses welcome donations of items for the apartments.
