Our primary offering is supportive housing for young men aged 17-24 who are transitioning from incarceration to independence. We will connect residents to needed wrap around services as well as assist with life skills, prosocial opportunities, and job readiness.

Jubilee Home hosts a community garden with ~400 sq feet of raised beds to provide fresh produce to the house and neighborhood.
Our community garden was started with the help of grants from the City of Durham’s Neighborhood Improvement Services and Duke’s Community Care Fund, and built with the help of community volunteers.
In our first season we are growing collard greens, beets, bok choy, cucumbers, butter beans, watermelons, a variety of tomatoes, peppers and gourds, as well as parsley, rosemary, mint, oregano, basil, lavender, and chives, and a variety of pollinator friendly flowers. The garden will provide fresh produce to Jubilee Home and the surrounding community.
Clothing and Food Distribution
Jubilee Home also serves as a clothing and food distribution point for our neighbors in the Dawkins Street neighborhood.
Jubilee Home is located in a part of the historical Hayti neighborhood that suffers from the damages of urban renewal and disinvestment. As part of being in a community with food and housing insecurity, Jubilee Home has become a hub for food and clothing distribution in the community. We are on pace to provide about 4000 meals to the community in 2020 along with many many pounds of food, clothing, and fresh produce. If you are interested in getting involved with us but don’t know how, we can always use food and clothing, and hands to organize it!
Job Opportunities through Jubilee Creations
We also partner with Jubilee Creations to create job opportunities for motivated individuals who struggle to overcome the barriers of finding a job while attached to a criminal record.
We get to build custom furniture, home projects and playscapes while watching young people build themselves up with confidence, purpose, and transferable skills.
