Jubilee Women’s Center supports women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures, one extraordinary woman at a time.
Led by the guiding principle that women of all races and cultures are to be treated with respect and dignity, Jubilee provides programs and services that empower women to make positive life changes.
Jubilee Women’s Center opened its doors in 1983 to offer Seattle-area women experiencing poverty and homelessness an alternative to emergency shelters. Jubilee’s transitional residential program gave women the time and support to stabilize, heal, and make positive life changes so they could reclaim their self-sufficiency. Today, Jubilee’s program serves approximately 60 women each year with affordable community housing, holistic support services, on-site care managers, and a focus on employment preparation to advance each woman on her path out of poverty. Jubilee serves an additional 2,000 low-income women with free referrals, job and life skills classes, clothing boutique, and computer lab.
