Jubilee! Alternative Micro-Shelter (JAMS)
The Jubilee! Alternative Micro-Shelter (JAMS) opened in Jubilee!'s downstairs space in April 2022 to provide shelter, life skills coaching and self care resources for a maximum of 10 unhoused women. From there, JAMS evolved into a hybrid space that sheltered all genders...a cross between a Code Purple shelter and its original purpose as a transitional shelter. The space even expanded to allow for sheltering large families.
In April 2023, Jubilee! sold its building, and JAMS closed. In the year that it was open, JAMS served over 1,252 unhoused folks, and has now evolved into Wildflower House, a new non-profit that is focusing on providing long term housing solutions to older women and LGBTQ women that have special needs and vulnerabilities.
