The mission of Jubilee Women’s Center is to support women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures, one extraordinary woman at a time. Led by the guiding principle that all women deserve respect and dignity, Jubilee’s programs and services help women make permanent life changes.
Since our founding in 1983, Jubilee Women’s Center has transformed the lives of over a thousand homeless and low-income women by providing safe, affordable and supportive community housing and educational resources to empower each woman to become financially independently, regardless of her circumstances.
Jubilee serves over 1,300 low-income women in the community with classes on technology, life skills and job readiness, community referrals, an open computer lab and free clothing boutique.
Jubilee’s approach is based on a three-part strategy to help women overcome barriers, build resiliency, and maintain long-term stability.
- We address significant barriers that exist for the women we serve related to basic needs, physical health, trauma and mental health, communications and connections, and legal issues.
- We help women build resiliency through financial health by gaining living wage employment, government benefits (if unable to work due to a disability), job training, financial management education, and finding affordable, independent housing.
- Finally, we help maintain long-term stability by helping them repair past relationships with friends and family, and build their support networks. We help them to increase their spiritual health by gaining life balance and giving back to the community.
