For 46 years Jubilee has worked to foster access to resources and opportunities, reduce the equity gap, and to bring about justice, through housing – justice housingTM .
In justice housing, all members of the community are welcomed and valued for their contributions, no matter their income level or background. We create justice housing by building homes that are deeply affordable, have on-site and nearby programs, and are in a thriving neighborhood. Stakeholders of justice housing come together to create a community that counters the divisions of income and race so that all residents can live their fullest lives.
Deeply Affordable Housing
Jubilee’s 13 properties, including our two reentry homes, are located in the Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods of Washington DC. Jubilee creates high quality homes, two – thirds of which are reserved for families and individuals making 30% of the area median income or below, that is about $35,000 for a family of four. Jubilee Housing residents have a high sense of housing stability, and experience a high level of satisfaction with their clean, high-quality, safe, and well-maintained homes.

Family Services supports adults and teenagers in pursuing increased economic stability and building assets through financial empowerment programming and eviction prevention services. Jubilee’s new Teen Center will help teens prepare for college and career, including last gap scholarships for higher education through Jubilee to College. Jubilee is also expanding its Aging-in-Place program which helps seniors continue to live in Jubilee Housing by providing the physical, financial, and emotional supports they need to continue thriving as they age.
Jubilee Youth Services provides K-6th grade Jubilee Housing residents and community members with out of school time programming and a six week Summer Camp. The program is divided into two sections: Early Start for students grades K – 3rd, and Activity Zone for students grades 4th – 6th. Our goals are to improve outcomes in the following areas: academics, health and wellness, community service, belonging, community building, and socioemotional growth.

Jubilee has provided a supportive reentry housing program in the Adams Morgan area for eleven years serving over 200 returning citizens, without a single incidence of disruption to the neighborhood. The Reentry Housing Initiative provides transitional housing and wrap-around services for men and women who are looking to rebuild their lives in a supportive, drug- and alcohol-free environment. Jubilee operates two reentry homes which serve up to ten women and ten men at time.
