Jubilee to College was founded in August 2011 because of one phone call. Two young, accomplished students, who were admitted to great colleges, had worked hard to secure their freshman year college costs with scholarships, grants and loans, but still did not have enough funds. A call was placed for help. Four individuals answered this request thus ensuring these young aspiring individuals had a chance to obtain their lifelong dream of attending college.
Jubilee to College’s goal is create a sustainable program that has the necessary funding to support the young residents of Jubilee Housing in their higher education goals.
Jubilee Housing is a 501 C-3 non-profit provider of affordable rental housing in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Jubilee is a leader in providing quality, affordable housing and also providing services to its residents to move forward in life. Every day Jubilee and Jubilee To College strive to break the cycle of poverty.
