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.

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.

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.
