Mission: 

CMECC is committed to developing higher thinking skills for young and older minds alike; named in part in memory of founder's mother, Mrs. Willemae Polk, who was an avid supporter of education, and in recognition of her admiration for family and community values. Founded August 10, 2006 by Paula Nelson, a former inclusion and transitional teacher with a Masters degree in Education, CMECC has always used proven educational techniques to instruct students. Paula Nelson believe, like many forward-thinking educators of the 21st Century frame of mind that, although many teachers did an admirable job in the classroom, many children did not learn well in traditional institutions, which explains why many children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. She believes that a child's strengths and natural ability needs to be the foundation of learning. For this cause, Paula Nelson warns against a "Cookie cutter" approach to educating children.

Mission: 

The Jubilee House is a 23-room mansion located in Dorchester's Codman Square, at the heart of Boston's most diverse community. Jubilee House is designed as an intentional living community, fostering Christian growth and personal transformation through everyday involvement in the urban environment. What We Do: The Salvation Army Jubilee House is a community based ministry on various levels. It is a church with Sunday worship services and Bible studies on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Its position within the Salvation Army also involves it in many seasonal assistance and outreach programs: i.e. Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets, a wide variety of summer enrichment programs for children and teens. More recently we have been involved in serving the evacuees of the Katrina disaster. Why Jubilee House? The name “Jubilee House” is derived from the Biblical concept…the Year of Jubilee. This festival was prescribed by God in the book of Leviticus. Celebrated every fifty years, it was to be a year of rejoicing when every debt was cancelled, every slave set free, every prison opened and every lost heritage restored. Our credo quoted from the prophet Isaiah ( in Isaiah 61:1-4) speaks of one to come who would bring about a more universal Jubilee. It is our mission to let those of our community know that there is hope, joy, victory, freedom, and deliverance in Jesus Christ, our Jubilee!
