What We Do
Jubilee House’s goal is to serve the marginalized in society and by doing so to challenge the cycle of poverty, improve the quality of life in neighborhoods and empower adult learners by providing individual tutoring in basic literacy skills, job readiness and advancement and the development of self-confidence and self-esteem for adult learners in a peaceful, welcoming, communal atmosphere.
We have two principal program areas: ESOL instruction (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and the Refugee & Immigrant Assistance Program providing post-resettlement support to refugees and recent arrivals to the Hartford area.
Welcome to Jubilee House! Serving Immigrants and Refugees
Jubilee House’s mission is to provide a holistic literacy program for underserved adult learners in the greater Hartford area with a particular focus on the literacy and basic human needs of the refugee and immigrant person, “one dear neighbor at a time,” in order for them to attain employment, acquire self-sufficiency within societal networks, sustainable independence and active citizenship.
Jubilee House envisions a world in which every neighbor is able to read, write, and use technology to experience harmony and well being, and to live a productive life.
