Mission Statement To offer hope to all in the Central Kentucky area who desire to work but face barriers and to do this through our seven step program that 1) educates people about becoming employed, 2) helps place them in jobs and 3) encourages them to grow and develop beyond their initial placement.
Background Statement
Jubilee Jobs of Lexington, which was patterned after Jubilee Jobs of Washington, DC., began in 2009 with a mission of finding entry level jobs for the unemployed and underemployed, many of whom have background issues which impact their job search.  Jubilee Jobs is a structured process which focuses on compassion, rapid and accurate assessment of interests and abilities and assistance with placement in the most appropriate job possible.  The Washington program has been helping people with jobs for over 36 years.
Impact Statement

In 2019, 262 people got jobs and a new lease on life through the help of Jubilee Jobs of Lexington, a local faith-based, nonprofit organization. Our organization is expanding community access through our new Outreach Program. Jubilee Jobs seeks to bring hope to many people in our community who may have given up and do not know where to turn.   Those who have gotten jobs through our program began their journey by participating in our proven 7 Step Jobs Program. What our clients find is more than a job, they find someone who is willing to walk with them through the job search process, the on-boarding process once they find a job, and continuing support to encourage them to advance as far as they can in their jobs. 

This support provides hope, confidence, dignity and a community. They see an opportunity to “work for sustenance, dignity and hope” once again.

Needs Statement
Since we are primarily a service organization, the most pressing need is continued financing to run the program.  Our desire is to reach more people with our services and help them to be able to provide sustenance, dignity and hope for their families.  We also need volunteers to help present workshops and directly help clients.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
As the Executive Director of Jubilee Jobs of Lexington, I consider it a privilege to work with the men and women who come through this program looking for hope.  As we assist second-chance job seekers, we are not only helping them start a new life but we are adding value to our community.  We can only do this through the generous support of our donors, volunteers and dedicated staff.
Board Chair Statement I thoroughly enjoy my association with Jubilee Jobs and personally see the impact it is having on its clients and the entire community.

Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact. Our mission is to offer hope to all in the Central Kentucky area who desire to work but face barriers and to do this through our seven step program that 1) educates people about the becoming employed, 2) helps place them in jobs and 3) encourages them to grow and develop beyond their initial placement. We were able to successfully help place 293 people into new jobs in CY2017. Our goal is to increase that number in future years until no one is without a job who wants to work.
StrategiesHelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals? Our job preparation and job placement program begins with an open program orientation meeting that takes place every Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. At this one hour meeting, attendees are given the opportunity to voluntarily sign-up for the free seven-step, two-week program. Once in the program, clients will have a personal meeting with a job counselor to discuss their history and their future. They then attend two workshops, one on interview preparation skills and the other on conflict resolution. They conclude the formal program with a personal resume appointment and a mock interview. After completing the formal educational part of our program, we encourage clients to remain closely in touch with us until they are employed. We follow-up with clients after employment to help them get promotion and raises. Our goal is to increase the number of attendees at our Monday morning orientation meetings and subsequently increase the number of clients we can help with jobs.
CapabilitiesHelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals? Our offices are located in the Community Ventures building in Lexington, Kentucky and is uniquely situated on a convenient bus line. We are adequately staffed to process many more clients as we are able to grow our client base. Our ultimate goal is to help as many people as possible to secure viable employment so they too are able to "work for sustenance, dignity and hope."
IndicatorsHelpHow will the organization know if it is making progress? What are the key qualitative and quantitative indicators against which the organization assesses its progress toward its intended impact? We track the progress of all clients who go through our program. This includes attendance at all meetings and workshops, job interviews, and jobs. We also maintain communication with all clients even after employment. Our goal is to increase the number of clients who enroll in our program, complete the formal program and actually get jobs. We keep statistics on all these areas and can easily see if we are continuing to make progress with eliminating poverty in our community.
ProgressHelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far? With a significant number of unemployed in the Lexington area, many of whom are no longer reported, we have a lot of work to do. We continue to look for innovative ways to inform those in the community about our program so we can help them with finding a job. Many of our clients face serious barriers to employment and really need our services. In fact, it would be difficult for a majority of our clients to find jobs without the assistance of a program like ours. While we have accomplished a lot since 2009, much more remains to be done. Through June, 2018, over 5,300 men and women have attended a program overview, over 2,990 people have personally met with a job counselor for assistance and 1,642 people have been put to work, moving them from poverty and despair to dignity and hope. In addition to helping people go to work in our community, these working people have give back over $20 million from cashed paychecks and paid taxes.

In 1983 I started Med-Rad Systems, Inc. which was a ‘traditional” radiology imaging equipment company. This company represented several Radiology Equipment Manufactures such as Raytheon, Toshiba and Shimadzu. Over the 6 years of operation Med-Rad was recognized nationally by several of these manufactures as “Dealer of the Year”, “Outstanding Sales Dealer of the Year” and for maintaining the highest “Customer Service Awards”. 

In 1989 the traditional radiology business was changing due to the manufactures’ taking over and providing services directly to customers so I founded Diagnostic Radiology Systems, Inc. which was a shared service provider of radiology equipment. The business model was based on the rental or sharing the diagnostic radiology service with customers who could not afford it in underserved & underserved areas. We were able to achieve several notable accomplishments such as, opening the first freestanding “PET” center in conjunction with the University of Kentucky in KY and the first mobile PET/CT service in KY. This company had 55 employees supplied services to customers in KY, TN, IN and OH.

In 2011 assumed the Director of Philanthropy position. As the Director of Philanthropy I was responsible for securing all the financial resources necessary for the services/programs which we provide in Lexington. Our annual budget was just over 6 million dollars a year. Some notable accomplishments were achieved during my time there by implementing enhanced donor relations and improving strategic fundraising plans over the years. This resulted in substantial increases in donor giving, sponsorship's and online Christmas giving programs. Our sponsorship increased over 100% from 2015 to 2019 and the Christmas giving online program went from $18,000.00 in 2012 to over $200,000.00 in 2017. To put that into perspective, the Lexington Salvation Army online Christmas program has been number 2 in the country just behind Chicago for several years and was number one in the country in 2018. Working in the nonprofit community over the past 8.5 years has allowed me to grow as a person and immerse myself into our community needs. Finding solutions to civic issues such as homelessness, educational access, food shortages and helping those with employment barriers has become my work.

In November of 2019 I took over the position of Executive Director of Jubilee Jobs of Lexington.

CEO Comments
The goal of our organization is to help men and women in the Central Kentucky region achieve full-time employment so they can provide sustenance, dignity and hope for their families.
Our organization helps provide the tools for second-chance clients so they can find a job to provide sustenance, dignity and hope for their families.  Our program consists of a structured, seven-step process to achieve the maximum effect in the job market.  Since the start of 2009, over 4,160 men and women have entered our program for assistance, 2,376 people have been given significant job preparation training and 1,209 people have been put to work, moving them from poverty and despair to dignity and hope.  The Jubilee Jobs program works!

Category Employment, General/Other Job Search & Placement

Program Short Term Success Short term successes include all those individuals who get jobs and are able to provide for themselves and their families.  By working, they get a renewed sense of hope and the pride that comes from being wanted.  Our goal is to increase our job numbers every year, as long as their are disadvantaged job seekers.
Program Long term Success Long term, our goal would be 100% employment for all those looking for work.  Because of the types of barriers most of our clients face, this goal will be difficult to reach.  Until more employers realize the value in giving second chance opportunities to prospective employees, many of our clients will need an advocate as they work through the job search process.
Program Success Monitored By We track our clients through every step of our program, from the orientation meeting, Job Counselor appointments, participation in workshops and resume preparation.  A little over a year ago, we implemented automatic mock interviews for our clients after their resume appointment to give them an edge on the competition.  This has proven to be very valuable to our clients.  In addition to an Access database on all our clients, we maintain a monthly register showing all participation in our program.
Examples of Program Success We are increasing the number of jobs program participants get every year.  In 2015, we helped 258 clients with jobs, 209 in 2014, 155 in 2013 and 131 in 2012.  In addition to helping more people with jobs, we have also improved the educational part of our program to make it more comprehensive.  We also offer community career fairs and we participate in community events to reach more people.
Program Comments
CEO Comments
Our primary program is to help Central Kentucky men and women, many of whom have had a difficult past, get a new lease on life by finding a job to provide for their families.  We firmly believe that "There is nothing in your past that can keep you from a productive, hope-filled future."  Our effectiveness in the community is only limited by the necessary funding for our program.

Jubilee Jobs is primarily a service organization.  Our current revenue limits what we are able to accomplish for area clients.  By increasing revenue, we will be able to add the necessary additional services to assist more clients throughout the year.
