What We Do
Jubilee’s residential program provides affordable community housing,
holistic support services, on-site case managers, learning opportunities, and a
focus on employment preparation to advance each woman on her path out of
poverty. Jubilee also provides low-income women in the community
with free referrals, computer access, and clothing.
Our holistic model
At Jubilee we support each woman to heal from past trauma,
explore possibilities for the future, and connect her with the
resources and opportunities to achieve her goals through a three-part strategy.
We support women to build resiliency through financial health by gaining living wage employment, job training, financial management education, and finding affordable, independent housing.
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.
