What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In an age where ZIP codes can determine a person’s life expectancy, place-based organizations are poised to make a significant difference in health equity among disenfranchised populations. The 500 Cities project cites living and working conditions, education, income, neighborhood characteristics, social inclusion, and medical care as the chief determinants of health equity; as a community revitalization agency addressing many of these factors, Jubilee Park has a critical responsibility to bridge these disparities, and to create a more viable workforce among current and future generations. \n\nWith an eye toward the future, Jubilee also recognizes the elders of its community as stalwart champions of the neighborhood’s improvement. As a 20-year-old organization, many of the neighborhood’s current senior citizens were among the most active volunteers during Jubilee’s founding. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, elderly adults will begin to outnumber young children just before the year

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Jubilee aims to bridge the gap between residents of Southeast Dallas and access to better job opportunities, higher wages, strong education and health care in an effort to improve lives and strengthen community.

Jubilee plans to address the historic lack of resources in Southeast Dallas through targeted programming in five key areas: Education and Workforce, Health, Housing, Safety, and Opportunity.

Jubilee is unique in that it identifies and aligns with community needs through regular assessments, surveys, and community forums in partnerships with the neighborhood association, local leaders, and nearby universities. Community members actively participate at every level as volunteers, staff, and community leaders in our task forces and external committees. High levels of community participation keep Jubilee both accountable and relevant, continually adapting to a changing urban environment.

Jubilee Park & Community Center (Jubilee) is a leader in neighborhood revitalization. Founded in 1997 by St. Michael's and All Angels Episcopal Church, Jubilee Park seeks to improve lives and strengthen community. For 20 years, Jubilee has empowered families in southeast Dallas through critical assistance in five key areas of impact: public health, public safety, affordable housing, economic development, and education. These fields of work mirror a hierarchy of needs at the core of which are healthy bodies and minds to build the foundation of a productive neighborhood. \n\nJubilee started with two small houses built as multi-use spaces in one of Dallas' most underserved areas. The little houses and the programs they offered grew to include afterschool programs, aerobics classes, nutritious meals, and tutoring. Today, 14 staff and 900 volunteers provide critical assistance to break the cycle of poverty for more than 1,600 individuals each at Jubilee's multi-facility campus, which includes the Walt Humann -- T. Boone Pickens Community Center, a Resource Center which houses police and community safety staff, a Head Start facility, an Early Head Start facility, an affordable senior housing complex and a three-acre park.\n\nThe foundation for all of Jubilee's work is education and prevention to disrupt the pipeline between poverty and incarceration, chronic disease, underemployment, and displacement. By insisting upon some component of education and enrichment in each of these services, Jubilee remains a whole-heartedly results-oriented organization. Furthermore, Jubilee seeks not just to intervene but to empower.\n\nJubilee’s focus on the five key areas of public health, public safety, affordable housing, economic development, and education have laid a foundation for success in community-based programming. After twenty years, the community can demonstrate a 70% decrease in crime, a significant increase in homeownership, a recognized public school, and award-winning senior citizen programs. The center has become a model for best practices in community revitalization, referenced locally and nationally as an exemplary organization. From pre-natal and early childcare programs to adult and senior education, Jubilee is proud of its commitment to providing a full continuum of services in an atmosphere that promotes multi-generational achievement.
