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 and longer-term housing program and on-site services gave women the time and support to stabilize, heal, and make positive life changes.
Over the years Jubilee has expanded its work to give even more women the time to move past trauma and rebuild their lives so they can live successfully on their own. Today Jubilee annually serves about 75 homeless women in the residential program and nearly 2,500 low-income women with free referrals, job and life skills classes, clothing boutique, and computer lab.
