As Community Engagement Coordinator for One Man’s Treasure and its current Executive Director, I have been privileged to work in partnership with the Jubilee Park Community Center board and staff on a special project to assist formerly incarcerated men in the Jubilee Park/Fair Park area who are searching for employment by providing them with clothing appropriate for interviewing. From the initial stages of the program to the present, I have found everyone involved with the Jubilee Center to be helpful and enthusiastic in their support of the mission of our program. Whenever I am at the Center, I find that same enthusiasm and dedication in all of the services to the Jubilee Park community, especially with the educational programs for children and adults and its outreach to the area senior citizens. The spirit of a visitor to the Center cannot help but be lifted when witnessing the work of St Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, the volunteers, and Community Center staff in Jubilee Park. It is a place of joy and hope.

The Great!

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

serving in the community through the partnership of One Man's Treasure with the Jubilee Center and seeing the dedication of the staff and volunteers not only in assisting with our program but in the lives of the community members through the ongoing education programs. I see the Jubilee Park Community Center as a true example of Christ's call in Matthew 25:36-40 to serve Him and others.

strenghten the communications of the work of the Center to the citizens of Dallas.

Being at Jubilee has been a rewarding experience. I thank Jubilee for changing my mind in wanting to now become a teacher all due to working in the summer and after school program they provided. Being at Jubilee and getting to know the families in the five years I have been here has been life changing. Many of the families have opened their home to me which they had not done to other staff members here. It is great to see that there is a place like Jubilee where people can just walk in through the door and feel like at home. Jubilee is more than just a community center it's a home where we all come together and become a family.

I am glad Jubilee is in the neighborhood giving great insight and perspectives. The work that is being done with the children is very needed in this community, and it is a great educational base for children to start learning about history, science, etc. I enjoy the staff - it is an excellent group! Everyone is the best! I want to stay in Jubilee and stay with the organization, because Jubilee is going to grow, and I want to grow with Jubilee! Jubilee is going to go places, and I wish to stay involved!

As a student in the ESL and Computer classes, I am learning! I'm learning to speak spanish and communicate with my neighbors, and I'm learning to operate a computer to increase my knowledge. I want to challenge myself to learn a new language and being thankful that Jubilee has this program in place- I can increase my skills and perhaps help someone else.

The children need help with their behavior in the after school program. They need help learning what is acceptable behavior in public. They could learn this better by doing role play and make it a game to make it fun.

I had the opportunity to visit Jubilee with a group of theology students in October of this year. It is an impressive facility, professional kitchen and serving area, classrooms for pre-school and K-12 students. Separate facility for older students to meet and hang out. The grounds were spacious and well maintained. The community garden was another indication how Jubilee is reaching out to the community in positive ways. They have a great relationship with the local police who also share part of their office space in a facility separate from the kitchen and classrooms. Jubilee has a friendly, forward looking and knowledgeable staff. Overall, our visit was a great positive experience. .

I toured Jubilee while working at another Non-Profit and I was amazed at how much they do for their community. While I was touring the community center and neighborhood, there were many community members that came in and out- all appreciative of Jubilee. This is an awesome resource for the community. One more thing that was great is all the staff members are nice!

If they don't already provide some sort of exercise class or center- that could be a nice addition.

My son needed a non-profit to research for a school project. He selected the Jubilee Center. We spent a day down there, exploring the facilities and meeting some of the children in the after school program. The teachers and staff there were so gracious and the children were obviously pleased with their program. The new building had not yet opened, and the children were just beginning their seedlings for their upcoming vegetable garden. They spoke with pride about the changes coming at "their" center. I was touched at how much ownership these youngsters had in this organization...with a foundation like this, how can these kids NOT succeed?! What a blessing for these students and their families!

I have been on staff at Jubilee for the past 6 months, and I cannot describe how blessed I am to work with this organization. Each day I witness people of different races, socio-economic backgrounds, and religions work alongside each other...even if we do not all speak the same language. The community outreach of this organization is phenomenal! I've never seen anything like it! It is amazing to see what great work can be done with groups of volunteers, donors, and community partners!

The Great!

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

Each year, more and more volunteers are getting involved. Most volunteers enjoy working one-on-one with children in Jubilee's programs, at Davids' Place Head Start, or OM Roberts Elementary. There are also many volunteers who serve in different capacities such as housing, anti-crime, and public health.

If I could make any changes to this organization, I would like to see this program modeled in other parts of Dallas and throughout the country. I'd also like to be able to reach a larger group of people!
