Inspirational Jubilee is Ready for Connected
Education is proving the cornerstone of success for one very inspirational community near Dallas.
The story of Jubilee Park has caught national attention. The once depressed and crime-ridden inner city neighborhood began a turnaround in 1997 that’s been nothing short of miraculous. What started with two Habitat For Humanity homes and some neighborhood cleanup projects grew into an entire movement backed by local leaders and a nonprofit organization. The community now boasts one of the top elementary schools in its district and has a new community center that serves as the service point for several programs aimed at supporting education, safety, housing, and most importantly respect in the tight-knit community.
