Jubilee Women's Center - Executive Director

Seattle, Washington, United States | Full-time | Partially remote


Position Profile

The Organization

Jubilee Women’s Center (Jubilee) opened in the fall of 1983 and is believed to be Seattle’s first transitional home for women. Jubilee offers residents a supportive housing community in which to heal from crisis and domestic abuse and get back on their feet. Jubilee supports each woman to find her best self, explore possibilities for her future, and connect her with opportunities to achieve her goals.

Jubilee’s program takes a holistic approach to working with women and their goals. Jubilee starts by assessing where participants are in 12 key development areas. Together, they identify what participants need to overcome barriers, build resiliency, and maintain long-term stability - and Jubilee will walk with them along the way. Jubilee offers community services to low-income women including referrals, a free boutique, office and computer lab access, and courses to develop skills in technology, communications, money management, and employment preparation.

Jubilee’s residential program gives program participants the stability and time they need to heal, grow, and rebuild their lives over the course of up to two years. At Jubilee’s four residences, participants will find safe and affordable housing, learning opportunities, employment preparation, and guidance from care managers as the program participant works toward a living wage career and independent housing.

Mission: Jubilee Women’s Center supports women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures, one extraordinary woman at a time.

Led by the guiding principle that women of all races and cultures are to be treated with respect and dignity, Jubilee provides programs and services that empower women to make positive life changes.
