We are looking for a few good men. Jubilee Transition Homes needs at least 5 or 6 mentors to come along side our residents and not only be a friend and good listener but also a serious Christian man who can take 1 to 4 times a month and get to know and understand the individual and love him as our Lord loves us. Please contact Gerry Pruyn the Executive Director at 503-260-6165 for additional information.Read More
Jubilee Transition Homes (located in Tigard, OR.) now has a one year history of helping homeless men come in off the streets, receive healing: spiritually, emotionally, and financially, get a job and eventually their own dwelling place. JTH provides residence up to 18 months for them to achieve the above stated goals. We provide a drug and alcohol free environment as well as living in a “family style” home with six other residents. The residents go to a church of their choosing. While looking for work they volunteer at a non-profit that is important to them. All in all, the men love it here and the turnover is slow.
We are sharing this powerful ministry with you to also let you know that we have initiated our CHAMPIONS PROGRAM. A Champion is one who supports JTH on a monthly basis in prayer and finances. Our Champion’s Program helps support a resident while he is looking for work. As you may well know, the current employment situation is “challenging” at best. And then to add to the resume a spotty history or worse yet a felony and you have, for sure, a recipe for a challenge in getting a job. The good news is four of our six residents are working. The rest of the news is we have more work to do in this arena. These men want to work. They are motivated to change their lives. And with your help, they will.Read More
