Jubilee Park & Community Center has improved lives and strengthened community since 1997 in a low-income area near Fair Park in Dallas. The area was plagued by crime, housing issues, hunger, lack of educational resources and poor health when the project was begun. Now the crime rate has been reduced by 25% for two straight years. The local elementary school is now ranked Exemplary. Jubilee provides a produce stand to bring fresh produce into the neighborhood, along with a garden to teach children about proper nutrition. There are 7 exercise classes for women of the neighborhood to improve health. Jubilee provides hot meals for all children in the After-School program, some of whom do not get another meal at home. Jubilee has also improved job skills with ESL and computer classes. For 13 years, the wonderful volunteers and staff at Jubilee have improved the futures of the residents of the neighborhood.

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

the transformation of the volunteers as they transform the neighborhood.

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

provide more opportunities for jobs in the neighborhood.

I am amazed at how Jubilee Park & Community Center successfully changes the lives and futures of the residents of Jubilee with a small staff. The reason is the large number of volunteers that provide so many hours of support. Among them are tutors and readers in the local elementary school. It was one of the lowest rated in the DISD and is now exemplary for two years. The opening of the new Walt Humann-T. Boone Pickens Community Center has provided oppotunities to greatly expand programs for children and adults.

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

the faces of the children and adults that come to Jubilee for opportunity and assistance. They know that Jubilee is changing their lives and futures through efforts in education, public safety, housing and health.

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

allow Jubilee to serve more people
