The Jubilee Women's Center (JWC) is a place women can find themselves again. My first contact with the JWC was through a then acquaintence that had become homeless and asked me to assist her in finding housing. I went with her to JWC for the intial interview. We both felt immediatley that the JWC was a place she would receive the support and guidance she needed to become self-sufficient. Because of the continued invovlement, an aquaintance has now evolved into a friendship and I became involved with the programs offered at JWC. The programs have been designed to meet a variety of women's needs. The staff is first class and Jubilee’s mission “To provide women a safe and supportive place to live and an opportunity to learn while becoming self-reliant in housing and employment,” was my friends experience.

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

I have had the opporunity to follow several of the women from the begiining of their stay through the completion of the program and know seen the differenc in their leives.

Jubilee changes lives and changes communities. With every woman that Jubilee is able to help, so too, is our community. Jubilee provides necessary services to support women in transition and successfully works with these women to gain or regain their independence. Jubilee does this through providing programs, clothing, technology training and other real life needs that support women towards independence. This organization has made me change my uninformed opinion about homelessness. Every time I walk into Jubilee, I see incredible women, who are like me, my friends, my co-workers, my sisters. Jubilee provides services to 100s of women monthly. The women, staff and volunteers of Jubilee are reshaping transitional services in Seattle.

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

my weekly, and sometimes more frequent interactions with the staff, friends, volunteers and board members of Jubilee.

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

that when I volunteer at Jubilee, I know that I am making a difference. I see the clientele of Jubilee, and they are the faces of Women working hard towards independence.

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

Incredible, dedicated, passionate and tireless.

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

Serve more women, make a greater impact to women in transition from homelessness to independence.

The Jubilee Women's Center fills a vital gap in stopping homelessness one amazing woman at a time. Their program is different that most because Jubilee gives women long-term support to get on their feet and rebuild their life (and job) skills so they can be successful on their own when they leave Jubilee. I can't say enough good things about the work that Jubilee does, which is why I've been involved there for so long.

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

I've seen the growth that the women at Jubilee experience in direct result of the stability and program provided there. Their success speaks for itself!

Jubilee Women’s Center is a magical place, not only because of the resilient and tenacious women who start a new and successful life here, but also because of the commitment to service of the founders, the staff and volunteers to serve here. Jubilee, through its mission is committed to providing women a safe and supportive place to live and an opportunity to learn while becoming self-reliant in housing and employment

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

Jubilee respects and values the intrinsic gifts and talents of each woman; offers a safe space and safe relationships and creating space to heal and a chance for self-growth. Jubilee values and honors each woman’s voice and draws it forth.

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

I would hold it as a model for other homeless shelters to emulate regarding resident services, staff expertise and committment and volunteer support.

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

the deep committment to service in support for the women Jubilee serves.

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

hard working, knowledgeable, and committed to the mission and the women they served.

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

become a national model with homes and services across the nation.

Ways to make it better...

My 7 year experience with Jubilee continues to deepen and influence all other areas of my life. Jubilee plays a significant role in drawing forth the best in me, and in turn I hope I do the same for Jubilee.

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

revenue streams.

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