Jubilee Housing builds diverse, compassionate communities that create opportunities for everyone to thrive.
Today, as low and moderate income families are being squeezed out of Washington, D.C. due to lack of affordable housing, our work makes sure they can benefit from the progress of the city. Our work creates justice housing.
We believe that every person in our community has unique gifts and strengths. We create opportunities to help surface them and harness their potential. Working with residents, we develop programs that advance economic stability for youth and families, returning citizens, and people of various backgrounds who have had limited access to opportunity.
We believe that compassionate communities are physical places as well as groups of people with a common purpose. Thus, we are committed to providing service-enriched affordable housing in the walkable geographic area that spans the Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods of Washington, D.C.
We recognize that we cannot create opportunities for people to overcome life challenges on our own. Inspiring others to join us in this calling is critical. Over the years, we have created strategic collaborative partnerships to help challenge the systems that perpetuate hardship and encourage shared resources and expertise.
