Jubilee Foundation

Engaging the people

Jubilee Foundation develops and nurtures life-giving communities. Our communities are places that encourage people to come together and discover greater meaning and purpose for their lives as they share their God-given gifts to serve the common good.

Core to our approach are four strategies


Honoring Diversity

Exposure to new cultures, ideas, and economies offers residents the opportunity to grow, and places the community in a healthier position to meet challenges. Our communities celebrate this diversity in all of its many forms through relationships, events, and activities.



Everyone should be known and loved. Staff in our communities walk alongside those who may be at risk of being lost, forgotten, or pushed aside. In our approach to do ‘with’ not ‘for’, we seek to equip individuals and families with the capacity to move past their challenges and engage the world.


Nurturing a Spirit of Care

Jubilee Foundation nurtures a culture within communities that enhances interaction and care among staff and residents. The degree to which the spirit of the community is raised is evident in whether residents serve each other and steward their environment.


Third Places

A community needs a gathering place that is neither work nor home. In these welcoming places, individuals can feel a sense of safety and belonging, which nurtures the formation of new relationships between individuals.
