The Jubilee Center

Charity Overview

Dedicated to providing children in public housing with opportunities to obtain educational and social support, Jubilee is committed to helping children overcome many of life’s barriers.

Project Summary

With funds raised by ICAP’s New York office in 2008, support given to The Jubilee Center helped to provide children in kindergarten through to sixth grade with access to computers, assistance with homework, individual tutoring and language instruction. Funds also supported its arts and cultural programmes, health and wellbeing activities as well as the expansion of a summer reading project. Hoboken's children are among the most economically disadvantaged in Hudson County. ICAP’s support has given so many of these children a summer safe haven in a neighbourhood with a history of gang activity, violent crime and drug-related arrests.
