Jubilee Statement on Racial Injustice
It is with heavy hearts that we continue to bear witness to the racial injustice in our country. The pandemic’s disproportionate impact on communities of color and the senseless killings of Ahmed Arbery and George Floyd have rightly pushed the long-standing issue of racial disparities to the forefront.
Jubilee has long stood for equality as we work for a better life for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all races and religions. We are committed to expanding our efforts to address structural injustices that affect people that receive services from and work for Jubilee. This includes actively working to increase our services to minority populations here in Montgomery County. It also means talking about how our diverse team works together and looking for ways we can do better. These times remind us that it is not enough to avoid explicit racism – we must actively practice anti-racism. To our black and brown colleagues and people we support, I share your anguish and pain and am committed to being part of the solution.

Happy Anniversary ADA!
This summer marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act – landmark legislation that’s made a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. Jubilee was founded on the belief that people with disabilities could and should be integrated into the community. While there is much more work to be done, we celebrate the achievements of the disability community on this important anniversary.
We provide the highest-quality community-based residential services and supports for adults with developmental disabilities.
