In February, a group of generous donors stepped forward with the funds to purchase and remodel an additional residence for Jubilee Women’s Center.
Located just a few blocks north of Jubilee’s main site in Capitol Hill, the new home will meet a need for those Jubilee program graduates who would benefit from an interim step of affordable housing and extra time to strengthen their financial position before making the leap into market rate housing.
Remodeling is currently underway to bring the residence up to code, create functional private and community spaces for 12 women, and refresh the interior after a decade as a group home for men. The new residence is expected to see its first renters by the end of the year. Watch for information about an open house later this fall.
