My professional background is in nonprofit-management, but I have chosen to volunteer my time at Jubilee because I heartily believe in Jubilee. It calls to me because it embodies so much heart and soul, but at the very same time it is very strategic in its multi-dimensional approach to changing lives in an impoverished neighborhood.

The Great!

When I helped organize the community event, it was so great to see the hundreds of community members joining together in community with smiles on their faces. I have also experienced results one on one with the children that I tutor when they stretch themselves academically and also realize that some stranger cares enough to be there very week just for them.

Work on some elements of the basic infrastructure, such as the development of a more complete database.

I am a Housing Inspector with the City of Dallas, and an active member of the community that I have attended Church Services in for 18 years. I am also a serving member of the Executive Committee of the United Peoples Neighborhood Association in Jubilee Park. I have seen the lowest of the lows as far as Crime, Neighborhood decline, and lack of interest among residents in the (now) Jubilee Park Community. The lack of interest in improving their conditions and a general sense of 'Everyone has lied to us before, and we trust no one. However, I am highly elated and blown away by the 'before' and 'after' insertion of the Jubilee Park & Community Center. I have worked very closely with the JP&CC from the onset and the initial Revitalization Plan, well before the mention of the Cowboy Stadium coming to the Fair Park Area. I cannot say enough about the care, dedication, overwhelming support, and grassroots LOVE that has been and still is a part of the entire Staff of the Jubilee Park and Community Center. In such a diverse and challenging neighborhood (a desert), life has sprung eternal. As a member of the community, I have experienced nothing less than FULL, and UNWAVERING SUPPORT, that has been given to each resident and their needs. We are proud to have become a Model Neighborhood in Crime Watch (more cameras monitored by DPD than other Communities), Neighbor Participation, Neighborhood Cleanliness, NEW NEIGHBORHOOD RESOURCE CENTER, NEW COMMUNITY CENTER, breaking ground for a SENIOR HOUSING COMPLEX in January, Head Start Center with plans for an addition Center, Green Spaces for residents, a BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED PARK for residents, and the list can go on and on. In a community of such vast needs, diverse ethnic backgrounds, where economic depravity, where senior citizen needs and desires were being pushed aside; the JPCC has met each head on and succeeded. I can only ask that you come and visit our Model Community, and you will be as enthusiastic as I am...

As a consultant, I have worked with the Jubilee board and its various committees over the past 4 years and I am always amazed at the progress being made in this little neighborhood. From new construction to the reduction in crime rates, this area has become an example for other neighborhoods in Dallas to follow. Jubilee is proof that change is possible and can be achieved through perserverance, diligence and community involvement.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the many community meetings that have been held over the years. The JPCCC Board and staff has been nothing less than attentive to the community's needs. The feedback provided by the community's residents has been overwhelming. I know the community will continue to be actively involved in every step of every project and program Jubilee undertakes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would encourage them to create a model that could be duplicated in other areas of Dallas.

The community enjoys coming to Jubilee because of the great ESL and Computer classes that we provide. People also like the fact that we fix any computer problems they encounter with their home computers. We also go to their homes and help them set up their internet connection. Since we opened our new building, attendance has been twice as much in both ESL and Computer classes.
