Outreach Community Ministries

Jubilee Village Transitional Housing Center

Carol Stream, IL

The Outreach Community Ministries is a faith-based community development agency that has been serving vulnerable children, teens and families in DuPage County for almost 50 years. Their Jubilee Village Transitional Housing Center provides safe housing and wrap-around support services to single mothers ages 18-24 who are either pregnant or parenting one child who would otherwise be homeless. The two-year residential program comprehensively addresses the needs of participants and includes counseling, structured case management, financial management, life skills training, encouragement, accountability, and access to a college scholarship. Jubilee Village is one of only two transitional housing centers in DuPage County that specialize in serving young mothers.

For it is in giving that we receive.
