Jubilee Award Winners

Annual Ceremony Recognizes Staff, Volunteers and Community Members

It takes a village to create the warm and caring community that Jubilee is known for. It was a true pleasure to recognize Jubilee’s village at our annual Employee Awards Ceremony and Party. Direct support professionals, members of our management team, and volunteers and community members all received awards for their contributions to the Jubilee family at the ceremony on October 19, 2022.

“Our work here is love made visible. Today, we celebrate everything that all of you do, because that love lives in our actions at Jubilee, big and small, menial and profound,” shared Executive Director Steve Keener at the ceremony.

After the virtual award ceremony, it was time to party! Food, prizes, and an impromptu dance party led Program Manager Maritza Rivera to share that “I haven’t had this much fun at work in a long time. I am so looking forward to future Jubilee events.”

Congratulations again to all of our winners, full list below. Thank you for sharing your gifts with Jubilee!
