Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

More than 150 adults in Montgomery County, Maryland, rely on Jubilee for support that promotes independence, secures housing, and connects friends. Some people we support need round the clock care and advanced nursing to help with feeding, medications, and other physical needs, as well as emotional and behavioral supports. Others need help paying bills, cooking healthy meals, organizing and taking medicine, getting to appointments, jobs, and social outings. Everyone needs community to combat loneliness and isolation, and Jubilee connects friends through volunteers, special events, and activities for the people we support.

Residential Services for Persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Jubilee provides community-based residential services to adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Jubilee supports adults with a range of needs based on their intellectual or developmental disability with services that support them in the home and out in the community. Our in-home support services from our highly trained professional staff range from drop-in support to help with bills, shopping and attending medical visits to live-in and round-the-clock support for those with greater care needs. Jubilee services are designed around the specific strengths, needs and preferences of each person we support. Everyone Jubilee supports participates in an annual Person-Centered Plan to ensure that their goals and vision for the year are clearly identified and supported.
As part of our commitment to inclusion, we support people where they want to live, including in their own apartments, family homes and group homes managed by Jubilee or our partner organizations. Our innovative hiring program includes the people we support in the staff hiring process to make matches that last based on shared interests and personality.

Population(s) Served
People with intellectual disabilities
People with learning disabilities

Jubilee helps the people we support find homes of their own with housing vouchers and partnerships with inclusion-minded developers and landlords. Our support services are separate from people’s decisions about where they want to live. By uncoupling services from housing decisions, the people we support gain greater independence and decision-making autonomy without fear of losing support services.
Currently, 60 percent of the people we support live in a home they own or lease themselves, 32 percent live in group homes owned by Jubilee or our partners and eight percent live in a family home. As we look to the future we are working closely as partners and advocates for inclusive housing that puts the people we support in the driver’s seat. In fact, innovation in housing has been a Jubilee hallmark since opening our first group home in 1978 as an alternative to state run institutions, and in 2008 Jubilee stopped purchasing group homes in order to prioritize supporting people where they want to live.

Charting impact

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

Jubilee Association is dedicated to helping adults with disabilities lead their best lives with top-notch residential support services and programs that create community. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities have hopes, dreams and plans, and with Jubilee’s support, they can achieve them. Our mission is to provide opportunities and support for adults with disabilities so they can fulfill their own personal, family, social, and spiritual needs.

As an industry leader, Jubilee continuously innovates to provide high-quality services and programs emphasizing inclusion, community and serving people where they want to live. Our strategies are based on a pragmatic approach to empowering the people we serve to make choices that enrich their lives .
• Training. All Jubilee staff receive training to ensure that they are knowledgeable and capable to provide needed supports.
• Personalized engagement. Staff members are matched to the people they support, building strong relationships and personal understanding.
• Respect. Respect for others is key to Jubilee’s strategy. We recognize the basic humanity of all people and treat them equally and with utmost respect, regardless of their level of ability.
• Advocacy. We advocate for justice with and on behalf of the people we support, and we are committed to serving and employing people of diverse cultures, races, religions and economic circumstances.
• Innovation. Jubilee is continually working to improve to better serve the people we support. Examples include a new pilot program that involves the people we support in the hiring process to make matches that last, and new housing partnerships that give the people we support greater choice and control over where they live.

Jubilee is recognized as an industry leader in the field. We employ more than 300 people as Direct Support Professionals to provide daily living support and nursing delegations for the people we serve. Jubilee has one of the most stable workforces in the industry. The national average turnover rate for professionals supporting people with disabilities is 51%. At Jubilee, due to a combination of passion, pay, benefits and culture, the turnover rate is 19%. Consistency of staff provides better care, comfort and satisfaction for the people we support.
Jubilee is a:
• Licensed Organized Healthcare Provider with the Maryland Department of Health.
• Founding member of the Maryland Association of Community Services for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (MACS) a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening agencies to better support people with developmental disabilities and their families in their own communities.
• Member of the Mennonite Health Service (MHS) Alliance.
• Founding partner of the Maryland Direct Support Professional Consortium, which is creating a professional development training program to improve Direct Support Professional retention using nationally recognized standards of practice.
• Member of the National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities, which seeks to assure the quality and commitment of the next generation of leaders for government and nonprofit organizations serving people with developmental disabilities.

Jubilee has been an industry pioneer since its founding in 1978 by Hyattsville Mennonite Church. From the beginning, Jubilee focused on inclusion. The aim was to move people out of institutions and into homes where they could be a part of the community. In 2007, Jubilee stopped purchasing group homes to prioritize supporting people where they want to live. In fact, Jubilee was one of the first agencies in Maryland to support adults with disabilities in their own homes. Today, 60 percent of the people we support live in homes and apartments they lease/own themselves, 32 percent live in group homes and 8 percent live in family homes. As we look to the future we are working to support a larger and more diverse group of adults with disabilities in Montgomery County; create more opportunities for people to have homes of their own; and develop sustainable staffing models that benefit staff and the people we support.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
