“Jubilee has always been known as a Mennonite organization, but in recent years we have become more explicit in talking to potential and existing employees about our identity as a faith-based organization and how important that is to our work.  We have a very racially-diverse workforce and many foreign-born employees.  A majority of our employees are Christian but a significant minority are not.  We have been surprised and pleased by how enthusiastically our employees have embraced these beliefs and values.”
