Jubilee! Alternative Micro-Shelter (JAMS)

The Jubilee! Alternative Micro-Shelter (JAMS) opened in Jubilee!'s downstairs space (101 Patton Avenue) in April 2022 to provide shelter, life skills coaching and self care resources for a maximum of 10 unhoused women who have income or jobs, and are close to achieving permanent housing.

Since then, JAMS has evolved into a hybrid space that shelters all genders...a cross between a Code Purple shelter and its original purpose as a transitional shelter. The space that JAMS uses has even been expanded to allow for sheltering large families. JAMS only accepts guests that are referred by the Community Paramedics and other close community partners.

If you have any questions about JAMS or want to volunteer, please feel free to call, text or email Amanda Kollar, (850) 323-1700 or amandakollar@gmail.com.  If you would like to participate by donating needed items, you can drop them off in the lobby at 46 Wall Street on Sunday mornings. Here is a list of supplies that are always welcome:

  • Caffeinated, Ground Coffee
  • Sugar and Cream
  • Individually Wrapped Snack Tall kitchen and 33 gallon Trash Bags
  • Toilet paper and Paper Towels
  • Napkins
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Hand Sanitizer and Lysol
  • Individually Wrapped Hard Candy

The JAMS team thanks everyone for your continued expression of love and compassion for this important work!
