Review for Jubilee Park & Community Center, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can remember my first time at Jubilee - and there was no park, or anything remotely looking green and peaceful! But the people who lived at Jubilee were warm and welcoming of our efforts to partner with them. Since then, the park is a green oasis, with children playing basketball and pre-schoolers laughing in the playground. I love seeing families together at the events with children who have grown up as I have intermittently been involved with Jubilee. The "I Believe in Angles" Christmas project and reading to pre-schoolers at Davids Place have been my favorite activities with Jubilee. I am so proud of Jubilee Park residents - they are the ones who believed and made life better everyday there.

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

The relationships of the residents has dramatically improved. The children have made the park their common ground and everyone is very proud of their neighborhood. The academic expectations are also much higher for the children.

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

Increase their visibility in the community of greater Dallas. I would also like to see a fund-raiser that could raise revenue yearly.

Role:  Volunteer & I chaired the Christmas project the second year SMAA was involved with Jubilee. I also was a "reader" to the 3 year-olds for several years at Davids Place.
