2019 Recap and Future Plans!!!

WOW!  What a year 2019 has been!  We want to thank everyone who has helped throughout this year to help realise Jubilee House’s vision: To be a community of second chances for women and children escaping domestic abuse; providing refuge and life skills, finding permanent housing, and empowering the restoration and rebuilding of their lives.  It would not be possible without the backing of our many supporters and volunteers who have given many hours for Jubilee House!  THANK YOU!

FUNDRAISING

This past year we have had several fundraising opportunities, and our communities have showed up in huge ways!  Through opportunities such as Fundraiser Races, Afternoon Teas, book sale proceeds, home party proceeds, Christmas Fayre fundraisers, and carolling, YOU have enabled us to SERVE!  Thank you so much for your endless commitment to Jubilee House and the many women and children this charity impacts.

FREEDOM PROGRAMME

Since November 2019, we have been running the Freedom Programme which is a 12-week course providing domestic abuse education, awareness, and information to help stop the cycle of domestic violence and abuse in peoples’ lives.  It examines the roles played out by perpetrators and the beliefs and attitudes which have enabled them to abuse.  The course will help the victim make sense of what has happened to them, why it happened, and how to spot the early signs of abuse.

Many participants have experienced new found strength to break out of the cycle of abuse, and have gone on to live abuse-free lives. 

This course is FREE to participants but does cost our charity.  We invite you to think about sponsoring a place on this course.  If you sign up to give a regular amount, it means we will be in a position to keep rolling and increasing the amount of people we can reach and help.

LOOKING AHEAD

We have applied for grant funding to help us continue to fill this great need.  We have a few fundraising things already in the works for 2020, and we especially look forward to our Jubilee House Open Evening on 21st February 2020.

NOT TOO LATE

Are you still looking for that perfect Christmas gift?  It’s not too late!  Consider donating to Jubilee House on behalf of your loved one!  Every bit helps!

Merry Christmas and Happy 2020!
