I started volunteering with Jubilee in the Fall of last year (2009) through the University of Washington. Jubilee was meant to provide me with a taste of social service work and get me out of the classroom and into the "real world." It's done SO much more than that... I've learned about homelessness in Seattle, especially women's homelessness, and what a huge issue it is to so many. I've learned the power of a small, well-run non-profit within the larger social context... Most importantly, I've found friends and mentors while working to alleviate poverty and displacement in the lives of many, truly inspiring women. Love you Jubilee!

I started volunteering at Jubilee Women's Center because I really wanted to put my energy into a sustainable non-profit. Jubilee's deep commitment to really creating lasting change in women's lives through empowerment and life skills training with one-on-one case management is wonderful. I highly recommend volunteering with Jubilee if you're looking for a place to contribute back to your community!

For over 25 years, the Jubilee Women's Center has provided transitional housing for women who are homelessness in Seattle. Hundreds of women have entered Jubilee's doors in search of a safe, supportive place to live and to learn while they're regaining the confidence, skills and support they need to move into permanent, affordable housing. The agency's success is a reflection of the leadership and support of donors, volunteers and members of the community, the commitment of staff and Board, and the courage and perserverence of the gifted and talented residents.

What a great organization! Jubilee does amazing work helping women in the Seattle area, and they are wonderful with their volunteers. My first work was in the boutique, but since then I've helped with fundraisers, the new-building dedication, and now I'm teaching a class to some of the residents. I am amazed at how empowering this organization is for all women, residents and volunteers.

The Jubilee Women's Center empowers all who enter its doors. As a volunteer, I've worked with welcoming, professional, nurturing staff members who not only tend to the immediate cares of its clients, but offer the women vital tools and support needed to help them succeed on their own. A little respect goes a long way - and the evidence is shown on the clients' faces, knowing that there is hope for positive change. I leave feeling great after each time I'm there!

ALl of the women of Jubilee, staff included, are extremely positive, kind, helpful, and supportive individuals. At the monthly community dinners we get to sit down to share a meal and conversation with the residents. Their stories are sometimes heartbreaking, but they all have only positive things to say about Jubilee. It's a joy to cook in their large and beautiful kitchen.
