Many years ago, as we were saving for our down payment on a home, we put away regular chunks of cash with Jubilee Housing. When it came time to buy our own home, we asked for the money back and there it was - pronto! and twice blessed. It's a great place to save.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

saving for my own home while at the same time helping others to own their home.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Personal, quick, reliable, faith-based.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've had phone conversations with folks at a desk; they been well informed and prompt in attending to my requests.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

OH>>>really put a dent in low income housing in the District which would then improve the lives of children and the elderly.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

For 35 years, Jubilee Housing has made a big difference to the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. They are currently the only organization in an increasingly gentrified area that offers affordable housing and wrap-around services. They believe that the way out of poverty begins with a home, and work hard to create and preserve housing for economically stressed people. Well-managed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping people help themselves; creating and nurturing community; breaking the cradle to prison pipeline. Their Youth Services program provides safety, caring, and academic support so needed for at-risk kids.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite everyone in the neighborhood to come and experience this community.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the chance to get to know a diverse community, particularly the children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, bright, idealistic, grounded, caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Address more of the needs of the 25,000 people still waiting for affordable housing and the 8,000 homeless in D.C.

Ways to make it better...

I could have reached more people in the neighborhood to tell this wonderful story.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the economic downturn and the structures of poverty built in to this country.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This small, well-managed program is a model for affordable housing programs around the country.
