The Organization. Jubilee Association of Maryland is a faith-based nonprofit that provides opportunities and support for adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to live in and enrich their community while fulfilling their personal, family, social, and spiritual needs. Jubilee was founded by Hyattsville Mennonite Church in 1978 as part of the movement to bring people with intellectual disabilities out of segregated institutions and into the community. Since then, Jubilee has grown to be a leader in the State of Maryland in developing supported living services as an alternative to group homes. Jubilee is a well-run and well-respected organization with solid financial footing and a committed and involved staff.

Jubilee's philosophy is grounded in an abiding belief that the created universe is good, all people are created in God's image, and all people are empowered. Our core values are:


  • Respect and Human Dignity
  • Self-Determination
  • Community, Mutuality and Service
  • Justice
  • Ethical Practices
  • Spiritual Care

All those associated with Jubilee work together as a diverse faith-based community of persons dedicated to caring for, supporting the aspirations of, and improving the daily lives of people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities as a moral and sacred imperative.

Beyond basic assurances for health and safety, Jubilee is flexible in its approach to providing services; keeping abreast of state-of-the-art trends in the developmental disabilities field, and remaining open to new and innovative best practices that increase opportunities for individual choice and responsibility that enables more self-determination. Jubilee builds partnerships with nonprofit, public and other faith-based organizations to provide the people it supports with choices regarding affordable housing, work opportunities, opportunities to practice their faith, and social and recreational activities.
