At Jubilee we pride ourselves on treating each other like family. All are welcome and respected, and differences celebrated. People we support and their families build lasting relationships with our dedicated staff and volunteers.
We offer a wide variety of programs and special events throughout the year. These include a summer picnic, Valentine’s Dance, trips and holiday parties. Our programs are currently offered virtually for health and safety. After the pandemic, our building in Kensington will again serve as a hub for community activities.
