Jubilee Baltimore is a non-profit developer and neighborhood revitalization organization. Jubilee helps the people of Baltimore to build safe, stable, desirable, mixed-income neighborhoods through affordable housing development and neighborhood revitalization.
Jubilee Baltimore has developed more than 700 units of housing and has managed a number of large planning and implementation efforts, most prominently the Midtown Community Plan.
In Midtown, Jubilee managed a planning process for four mixed-race neighborhoods with a population of 13,000 and many of the city’s key cultural institutions. Jubilee gathered data, recruited more than 200 community volunteers, led 120 separate work sessions, and produced an award-winning plan in 1999. Out of this came the creation of the Midtown Development Corporation, which Jubilee has staffed since its inception in 2000. Working as Midtown Development, Jubilee has renovated more than 125 Midtown buildings and created strong housing markets in neighborhoods that were previously in danger of catastrophic decline. www.jubileebaltimore.org
