Our history

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.  Tim Wiens has served as Executive Director since 1979.

Jubilee Association of Maryland continues to be affiliated with the Hyattsville Mennonite Church. The Jubilee by-laws require that a majority of the Board of Directors be members of a Mennonite Church and that a majority of that majority must come from Hyattsville Mennonite. The values of this church are reflected in the work of Jubilee through the work of the Board of Directors. For more information about Hyattsville Mennonite Church visit its website at http://www.hyattsvillemennonite.org.

Jubilee is also a member of the Mennonite Health Service (MHS) Alliance. MHS Alliance is a community of Anabaptist health and human service ministries committed to God’s work of healing and hope in Christ Jesus. For more information about the MHS Alliance visit its website at http://www.mhsonline.org.

Jubilee values each individual’s spirituality and religious beliefs. Individuals are encouraged to be involved in their community of faith and are encouraged to pray before evening meals. At the same time, Jubilee does not discriminate based on religion in its admissions policies or practices, or its employment practices.
