Mission Statement

The mission of Jubilee is to be a catalyst for community renewal and enrichment to the surrounding Dallas/Fair Park neighborhood, with special emphasis on the education of children and adults, with a focus on comprehensive community revitalization.

Description

For 15 years, Jubilee has provided critical assistance to families in southeast Dallas. Annually, 10 staff members and more than 800 volunteers provide services and education to over 1,100 individuals in Jubilee Park and the surrounding area. Jubilee operates a multi-facility campus which includes the Walt Humann - T. Boone Pickens Community Center, a resource center, a Head Start facility, an Early Head Start facility, a senior housing complex and a 3 acre park.

The Jubilee Park neighborhood encompasses a 62-block area bounded by I-30, Fair Park and East Grand Avenue. The majority of families are working poor, with 40% living below the federal poverty level. Jubilee provides culturally and linguistically appropriate services to ensure that all residents are able to access programs. Jubilee takes a comprehensive approach to community revitalization focusing on five key areas: education, public health, public safety, affordable housing and economic development.

Would you recommend Jubilee Park and Community Center?

by Bridget S. (February 27, 2013)
My after school club, the Geo Club, has volunteered twice at Jubilee Park. The staff is super friendly and easy to work with. The center is clean, well-organized, and a fun environment. The kids that are enrolled in the program are very sweet and well-mannered.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
