Like many Washington neighborhoods, Adams Morgan has undergone significant gentrification in recent years. But while poverty has become less visible, it is still present and debilitating. For the 22% of Ward 1 residents who live in poverty, Jubilee Housing provides an array of support services and seven affordable housing complexes, which are home to more than 700 people. It has also created a true and vibrant community where residents have initiated everything from grocery store outings to a neighborhood walking club whose members went on to run a 5K race. A Youth Services program provides kids with a safe place to meet mentors, receive homework help, and simply enjoy the company of their peers. An enrichment program helps adults save money, improve fitness and nutrition, and prepare to own a home. Jubilee never stops improving and has instituted a major, multi-year initiative to renovate all its properties. For 37 years, Jubilee has pursued a simple vision: a city that is livable for every family at every income level. Donít we all want that?
