Jubilee Women’s Center is a transitional housing facility for women in need. It has been meticulously, meditatively developed from decade to decade to provide comprehensive care to its clients: job training to money management classes, desperately-needed relaxation at a movie or ballgame to structured community living. It has been a quiet force in Seattle since 1983, when three members of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace opened its doors to 20 women. That number is now 60 a year, and Jubilee is independent of the Sisters, a self-sufficient 501(c)3 non-profit.
Jubilee needs women’s clothing, which it distributes to its clients on a regular basis, and other support as well. Take a look at what three inspired women have wrought. In particular, take a look at its logo AFTER reading this, quoted from its History:
After nearly two decades with our familiar blue logo, Jubilee Women’s Center introduced a new design that better captured the Jubilee brand today: the butterflies represent transformation, community and diversity; the colors call to mind prosperity, confidence and the Pacific Northwest; and the typeface evokes class, dignity and strength.”
