Three years after launching Habitat for Humanity, a small group of people at Koinonia Farm in Americus, Georgia sought to form a new Christian service community. Jubilee Partners was founded in 1979 on 258 acres of beautiful rural land in northeast Georgia. The first Jubilee families lived in tents as they worked on constructing houses. During their first hot, humid months of living and working outdoors without modern conveniences, they got a glimpse of the realities of refugees struggling to survive far worse situations. As a result, God gave the first Jubilee residents a vision to offer hospitality for such people, work that continues to this day.
