Jubilee has ongoing or one-time volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups, including students, service learners, interns, corporate teams, community organizations, and families. Take a look at our volunteer opportunities below to find the way you want to make a difference.
Jubilee is grateful for the hands-on support we receive from the community: more than 7,000 hours last year, the equivalent of several additional staff members. Volunteers expand Jubilee’s ability to serve more women in our community, more effectively. Our volunteers are valued not only for their gift of time and service, but also as an integral part of the community of support for residents who often feel disconnected.
Connect women in the community with much-needed resources, both at Jubilee and at other community organizations. Our friendly office volunteers are the first point of contact for people calling Jubilee about housing assistance, donations, and getting involved at Jubilee. Shifts are 2-4 hours per week on weekdays.
Sort and organize donated clothing or help boutique customers shop for clothing. Last year, volunteers enabled 700 women to access free clothing at Jubilee’s boutique.
Help plan, promote, and procure auction items for our events, which raise nearly one-third of Jubilee’s annual operating budget. You can also help on the day of the event with set-up, clean-up, or greeting guests.
Help with basic home repairs and painting to keep residences safe and attractive. Or maintain our vegetable and ornamental gardens for the enjoyment of residents.
Clean and prepare bedrooms for new residents moving in to Jubilee to help them feel welcome in their new home.
Donated meals can be prepared off-site and dropped off for the women to enjoy.
Stretch the capacity of our staff by sharing your professional skills. Current opportunities include:
Jubilee offers free courses for any low-income woman who wants to develop personally or professionally. If you have experience instructing on any of the following topics, we would love to hear from you:
Please fill out a Volunteer Application to be contacted about our next volunteer orientation. These overviews are typically scheduled each month on the 2nd Friday and 3rd Monday. At orientation, we’ll discuss a variety of opportunities for getting involved, take a tour, and talk more about our programs.
Our sincere appreciation to the corporate partners who sponsored Jubilee Women’s Center events in 2017-18. Your generosity has eased the way for more than 2,000 women on their path out of poverty and impacted homelessness in our community. Thank you for believing in the extraordinary women of Jubilee!

Host a drive for clothing, goods or gift cards at your office to benefit Jubilee women! We especially appreciate collections for our wish list items or clothing and accessories for our free boutique.
The holidays are often a difficult time for the women at Jubilee Women’s Center as many are far away or estranged from family. We encourage our community to provide gifts for the women so they can have a memorable holiday and feel supported. Your company or employees can sponsor a resident, host a holiday giving collection, or buy small gifts for each of our participants.
By sponsoring a fundraising event, our corporate partners are getting valuable visibility with a philanthropic audience and helping underwrite event expenses so individual donations can fully support Jubilee’s programs. From $2,500 to $25,000, there are sponsorship options to suit a variety of budgets and objectives.
Jubilee offers employment preparation and life skills classes for Jubilee residents and other low-income women in the community. Business professionals are often needed to instruct a class or workshop, host a panel discussion, or otherwise support our educational opportunities.
If your business would like to partner with Jubilee to sponsor a profile in the Puget Sound Business Journal Giving Guide—and get a full-page ad at nonprofit rates—we want to talk.
