The mission of Jubilee Housing is building diverse, compassionate communities that create opportunities for everyone to thrive. Since 1973, Jubilee has worked to provide high quality affordable housing and holistic support to those experiencing persistent economic hardship in the Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights neighborhoods of Washington D.C. Jubilee operates ten properties totaling 299 units of affordable housing and offers robust programming for residents and community members pursuing life goals.
Jubilee Housing is an innovator in financing for affordable housing and a responsible steward of the investments it receives. Jubilee produces not simply affordable housing, but justice housing.
Justice housing is affordable to those with few financial assets, located in neighborhoods where resources such as good schools, grocery stores, and public transportation are readily accessible and near services that support residents as they pursue educational and career attainment.
Jubilee is seeking individuals who are excited about this concept and want to work with us to ensure Justice Housing becomes a reality for all Jubilee Residents who want to be a part of the Justice Housing Community
In 2011, Jubilee Housing opened the Re-entry Housing Initiative (RHI), which is a transitional housing program for justice involved DC men and women returning from incarceration. Jubilee currently operates two homes in the Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights neighborhoods, one for 10 men and one for 10 women and seven (7) long-term studio apartments for 7 justice involved residents. Jubilee is currently seeking a Re-entry Case Manager to support the reentry success of the residents in our transitional housing and long-term studio apartments.
The Case Manager works with the team to create a transformative community experience, where peers support each other and residents receive support and accountability in their reintegration journey. The Case Manager will empower residents by working with them to assess their needs, develop Goal Plans, and monitor progress towards individual goals. The Case Manager will also lead life skills recovery groups, meet with residents individually, and facilitate interdisciplinary approaches to care based on resident needs. The Case Manager will address addiction, life skills development, goal planning, financial management, and plans to transition out of the Program at completion or prior. These activities will be executed through 1-on-1 engagements and group activities that take place at the RHI office, at the Men’s and Women’s Houses, and at the building housing the 7 long-term studio apartments.
