Jubilee Park & Community Center
November 28, 2010

Jubilee is a dedicated volunteer organization that is transforming a 62 block lower-income area of Dallas by dealing with all aspects of poverty (education, crime, housing, mentoring, child-care, etc.). The volunteers and staff are all highly motivated and focused on providing long-term solutions to breaking the cycle of poverty in this neighborhood.
