Jubilee Women’s Center helps women end their homelessness permanently, and we need your support. Jubilee’s operations are funded through the generosity of individuals, corporations and private foundations. Thank you, our community, for your steadfast support of our mission and the women we serve. You are a part of each Jubilee woman’s success.

Your contributions allow Jubilee to provide women in our community with safe and affordable housing, personalized care management, technology and life skills training, a free clothing boutique and individualized community referrals. Last year, 82 percent of Jubilee residents transitioned into stable independent living.

Donations to Jubilee Women’s Center are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Jubilee will send you acknowledgement of your gift so that you can claim your deduction. Any contribution, big or small, is greatly appreciated.
