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. We understand our work to be about justice – for people who have been excluded from the prosperity of our city, and for our city itself to become a more equitable and united community. Our response is justice housing: 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 approach and want to work with us to operationalize our goals and aspirations.


In 2011, Jubilee Housing opened the Re-entry Housing Initiative (RHI), which is a transitional housing program for justice involved DC residents 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 Recovery Services Coordinator (RSC) to provide critical alcohol, drug abuse, and other recovery supports linked to addictive behaviors for the men and women in our transitional housing program and in the seven (7) long-term studio apartments.
