The Jubilee! Directory of Well-being Providers
Jubilee! is developing a Directory of Well-being Practitioners which will enable Jubilants to identify professionals within our community who are qualified to offer mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing services. Criteria have been developed for providers interested in being listed in the Directory and copies of these are available in the Hospitality Room. The Eligibility Guidelines describe the types of services to be included in the Directory (Pastoral Counseling, Mental Health Therapies, and Alternative Service modalities) as well as specific requirements for licensure, accreditation and/or certification in each field.  In addition, Jubilants working in areas not specifically identified in the Guidelines, may submit applications which will be reviewed by the Directory Committee on an individual basis. Currently, the Directory Committee consists of Board Members Barbara Brady (barbara@mycoachbarbara. com), Sue Martin (msusannah55082@yahoo.com) and David Robertson (mountaintwin@yahoo.com).

Latin Neighbor Team (LNT)…Building relationship through work
Jubilee!’s LNT builds relationships with our Latino neighbors through work.  Our Latino friends offer you jobs well done for pay based on their work estimates and a fair income to support their families. Many of the parents came to the area before 9/11 and their children were born in the United States. Latino participation contributes in many important ways to our state and US economy, including the taxes they pay.  If you would like to welcome our neighbors, call Marian Patten, 828-252-5826 to arrange professional painters, land scape workers, yard workers, house cleaners, and power washers.
