How Your Donation Will Go the “Extra Mile”
When you donate to Jubilee Park & Community Center, you are helping spark real and lasting change in Southeast Dallas. The Jubilee Park area is a Medically Underserved Area (MUA) and a food desert–this means the neighborhood has few primary care providers, a high elderly population, high poverty and limited access to grocery stores.
Your donation helps Jubilee fill in that gap today as a hub for much-needed resources and services. A gift to Jubilee goes the extra mile by fueling long-term, holistic solutions to break the cycle of poverty. Jubilee Park residents work alongside staff and volunteers to drive community revitalization efforts and programs across 5 Key Pillars of Impact: Safety, Health, Housing, Education/Workforce and Opportunity. From after school programs to senior meals to pop-up clinics and more, we need your support to make our neighbors’ dreams a reality!
REVITALIZING THE SOUTH DALLAS COMMUNITY
The Jubilee Park community was once a robust, working class neighborhood. Then a major highway was built right through its heart, and a nearby factory (where most people worked) closed its doors. For 30 years, people struggled to keep their 62-block neighborhood safe But in 1997, a new opportunity rekindled the hopeful spirit of this resilient community alongside Fair Park when a group of visionary neighbors and volunteer leaders came together to establish Jubilee Park & Community Center as a catalyst to strengthen and revitalize the community.
For over two decades now, Jubilee Park & Community Center has served as a catalyst for community change and revitalization in Southeast Dallas. By providing after school programs, safety, health education, affordable housing opportunities, workforce development, access to pop-up clinics, health screenings and more, Jubilee has empowered South Dallas neighbors to dream and achieve.
