Jubilee Association of Maryland was established as an outreach of Hyattsville Mennonite Church in 1978. Beginning with one group home serving seven adults, Jubilee has gradually grown to now serve 135 adults with developmental disabilities. Jubilee provides services to 41 people in 12 houses owned by the agency. Jubilee supports 94 adults who live more independently in the community and are funded by Community Supported Living Arrangements, Maryland Individual Support Services, and Montgomery County Individual Support Services-County or County Crisis funding.
