Jubilee House is a faith-based ministry housing program which provides sober living for men ages 18 and over in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The house was founded under the direction of a man named Elisha Harris following his release from Pendleton correctional Center. In pursuit of his mission to provide a safe respite for men once they exit incarceration, JH has, since 1997, helped men from diverse backgrounds by housing them in a sober Christian living environment.

Eligible clients must be on parole or probation and have ankle bracelets.
