Jubilee House Now A Part of the House of Bread
In 1996, the late Sister Maris Stella Hickey, CSJ, leased from the City of Hartford for one dollar a former convent adjacent to St. Augustine School in the south end of Hartford.
After years of misuse, the building was lovingly restored, renamed Jubilee House, and opened to the public in 1997 as a community adult education and social service center.
Today, Jubilee House provides English literacy and social integration services to low-income Hartford residents, especially immigrants and refugees, in order for them to acquire employment, achieve self-sufficiency within societal networks, sustain independence, and become active citizens.
We have two principal program areas: ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) instruction; and the Refugee & Immigrant Assistance Program.
Located at 40 Clifford Street just off Maple Avenue in Hartford’s South End, Jubilee House is open year-round for Refugee Assistance clients, and hosts ESOL classes September-May. The building is also home to women transitioning from shelter to independent living.
