Dear Friends: Thanks to the many people who support the work of Jubilee by supporting our annual Roast. Thanks especially to Joe Theismann for agreeing to be our roastee this year. Watching the Redskins march to the super bowl in 1982 led by Joe Theismann is one of my fondest memories as a young adult in Washington, D.C. I am very excited about the work Jubilee is doing to support individuals who have intellectual and other developmental disabilities to live in and enrich their communities. Jubilee serves over 130 individuals in over 65 locations throughout Montgomery County, in small group homes, in apartments or houses which the people we serve rent themselves, and in homes owned by Rosaria Communities, HOC, and the MHP. We think of ourselves as innovators. We are always working to ďŹ nd new ways to help the people we serve to live lives of dignity in our community. We innovate by partnering with families, with the faith community, with our local housing authorities, and with other non-proďŹ ts that provide housing in which we provide services. We innovate in the ways that we attract and retain employees who are skilled at what they do, who are committed to our mission, and who transform the lives of the people we serve every day. We innovate by ďŹ nding new ways to support people who have autism to develop full social lives. We innovate in governance by building strong Boards that provide accountability to our constituencies, that set strategic direction, that raise money and that connect us to the Montgomery County community in so many ways. Our annual Roast brings together the many constituent groups that support our work for a time of fun and celebration. We hope you have a wonderful time at the Roast. Sincerely, Tim Wiens

Executive Director

ABOUT THE 2014 JUBILEE ROAST The annual Jubilee Roast is the primary fundraising event for Jubilee Association of Maryland, and the only event of its kind in the region. Each year, we honor a community leader at the Roast. Our honoree for the 2014 Jubilee Roast is Joe Theismann, former Super Bowl-winning quarterback of the Washington Redskins. The event includes a reception and seated dinner for 600 guests, during which we show a film highlighting Jubilee’s work in the past year and speakers “roast” our honoree in good humor and fun. This year, we also will have a silent auction during the reception. The funds raised support Jubilee’s work to provide high-quality residential services and supports to adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in Montgomery County, Maryland. Joe Theismann has been a good friend to the people of the Washington metro area, since his time as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback with the Washington Redskins. In addition to his philanthropy and work in the media, he oversees the popular Washington, D.C. restaurant, “Joe Theismann’s.” The Master of Ceremonies for the 2014 Jubilee Roast will be Larry Michael, the "Voice of the Washington Redskins." Roasters will include: Jeff Bostic, former Washington Redskins Center, and original member of the famed "HOGS" offensive line; Mark Moseley, legendary Washington Redskins Kicker and former NFL MVP; and Rick “Doc” Walker, former Washington Redskins player and NFL Super Bowl champion and media personality. To purchase tickets, visit jubilee.ejoinme.org/2014Roast.

ABOUT JUBILEE ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND Jubilee Association of Maryland is a nonprofit organization that provides community living supports to adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in Montgomery County, Maryland. Jubilee is a known leader in its field, often serving as a model to organizations throughout Maryland and across the nation on how best to serve people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Jubilee was started by the Hyattsville Mennonite Church in 1977. Jubilee Association of Maryland provides community-based residential support services to adults with developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome, CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

ABOUT JUBILEE ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 autism, intellectual disabilities, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. Currently, Jubilee provides services to 130 adults with developmental disabilities at over 60 scattered sites throughout Montgomery County. Those locations and support services vary according to what the individual wants and needs. Some live in apartments with a roommate or homes shared with 2 or 3 more people, some live in the family home. Many Jubilee clients work during the day at such places as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Department of Labor, Discovery Communications, and the Kensington Library. Other Jubilee clients attend day programs, such as ROI, CHI Centers, and The Arc. A few even started their own businesses, walking dogs and bringing trash and recycling cans to the curb for their neighbors. Jubilee clients frequently get together for community activities like a holiday party, a game night, or a shared meal. Every summer, the whole Jubilee family gets together for the annual Jubilee Cookout.

JUBILEE ASSOCIATION MISSION Jubilee Association of Maryland provides opportunities and support for adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to live in and enrich their community while fulfilling their personal, family, social, and spiritual needs. The following core values inform the way Jubilee promotes itself, makes decisions, deals with people, and supports peoples’ needs: • Respect and Human Dignity. All those associated with Jubilee recognize the basic humanity of all people and treat them equally and with the utmost respect, regardless of their level of disability or role in relationship to the agency. • Self Determination. Jubilee subscribes to the philosophical concept of “self-determination”: that is, we believe all people have the right to control their lives and resources. • Community, Mutuality, & Service. Staff and board work together, to promote an ideal of service and open communication so Jubilee can create a sense of community both within and outside the agency to enhance the lives of those we support. • Justice. Jubilee advocates for justice on behalf of the people we serve and is committed to serving and employing people of diverse cultures, races, religions, and economic circumstances. • Ethical Practices. Jubilee operates with integrity, insists on quality and clear financial oversight, and bases its actions on open discussion. • Spiritual Care. Jubilee actively supports the spiritual needs of the people we serve and the people we employ.

JUBILEE SERVICES Jubilee values a continual search for ways to improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities, and therefore Jubilee strives to remain flexible and ready to adapt, with care, to new ideas and new ways of doing things. Jubilee’s role, beyond providing basic assurances as to health and safety, is to support people to live their own lives, not ones circumscribed by a rigid program applicable to all. Moreover, we realize that both our organization and the people we support do not function in a vacuum; we and they must connect to the surrounding community. These core values drive Jubilee in its efforts to support people to achieve self-determination and to develop skills and meaningful relationships in their homes, individual lives, families, and community. PEOPLE’S HOMES Jubilee provides supports to people who live in their own and in agency-owned housing. Jubilee also partners with non-profit, public and faith-based organizations to create affordable, accessible housing which our clients can rent or own. People choose where they want to live and with whom. Roommates may be friends, family, or paid support personnel. Jubilee strives to ensure that people live in comfortable and caring places where they enjoy spending time with people they like. “Home” is a place for both relaxation and growth, where people can follow their own routines and learn skills and responsibility in a natural environment. At the same time, Jubilee continually works to guarantee that people’s health and safety needs are met.

THE INDIVIDUAL In line with self-determination principles, Jubilee designs its supports around the individual. We begin with a planning meeting that includes the person and those closest to him or her to determine who the person is and how the person would like to live. We examine likes and dislikes, wants, needs, and dreams, and design supports to accommodate. We help people develop their talents and introduce them to and help them explore new possibilities for leisure and other activities. THE COMMUNITY Because we believe that all people should have equal access to what the community offers, we help people develop the network of connections that weave them into the life of the community. We also encourage staff to develop community relationships both for themselves and for Jubilee because we can only connect others when we ourselves are interconnected. We reach out to people and resources in the general community to find opportunities for those we support to work, learn, and play. As a faith-based organization, we consider it particularly important to help people connect, as they choose to participate in their own religious community. Jubilee continually looks for ways to support people to become active members in their community, including helping them take on leadership and civic roles. In a personal sense, Jubilee supports people to maintain and develop the kinds of relationships with their friends and family that enrich lives. It strives to promote congenial relationships among those who live and/or work together. In this way, the organization can develop its own warm, reciprocal community-within-a-community that nurtures people and gives them the confidence to take their place in the larger world.

“The parish community was a ready-made neighborhood ood for the residents.” -Tom Welch, President and CEO, Rosaria Communities, Inc.

“One of the principles of self determination is giving people more control over their lives. And one of the ways you do that is you give them more control over housing.” -Tim Wiens, Executive Director, Jubilee Association of Maryland

BUILDING HOUSING PARTNERSHIPS

JUBILEE’S RETIRING AT HOME PROGRAM

Jubilee is a leader in creating housing partnerships to increase choice for adults with developmental disabilities to live where they want and to receive services from the agency they choose. Jubilee developed the Model Housing Partnership Program to create more affordable housing opportunities for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and to look for more creative ways to separate housing from services. By separating housing from services, people will have more choice regarding their service providers and their housing options. Jubilee looks to nonprofit and for profit partners to build and own the housing while Jubilee implements a process to select individuals to live in the house and staff to provide ongoing support services so people can live independently in the community. Three houses have been completed with Rosaria Communities of the Archdiocese of Washington: a house on the church grounds at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Gaithersburg, a house in the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church parish in Wheaton, and the third in the parish at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Olney. Four houses have been completed with Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC). Four residences have been completed with Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP).

The Retiring at Home Program allows older er adults with developmental disabilities an option to retire from their jobs and typical day programs and to do what they would like to o do in their later years. The program currentlyy provides services to 35 beneficiaries who get et together for regular social activities. They visit sit the Botanical Gardens, the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore Harbor, orr sometimes they get together at the Jubilee O. office for crafts, movies, or games of BINGO.


JUBILEE’S REACHING OUT PROGRAM The Reaching Out Program for individuals with autism spectrum disorders who want to retain skills gained in school to be able to lead an independent life. The program serves beneficiaries in classes such as Cooking for Independence, a movie class, S.P.I.R.I.T. Club, an exercise and nutrition program, and two different social groups, more staff-led STAR (Social Thinking and Relating), and more participant-led TAO (Together as One), that allow clients to interact regularly with others in social situations. The groups are led by trained staff and therapists. Outings in the community with the group give participants opportunities to practice new social skills and to encounter new situations and change, and to become more comfortable with compromise when deciding each week’s activity. Jubilee’s Cooking for Independence class is always very popular. In the class, participants learn how to plan, shop for, and cook low-cost, nutritious meals. Each person takes a turn chopping vegetables, cooking at the stove, cleaning as they go, and eating what they cooked. They learn about good kitchen safety and hygiene as well. At the end of the term, everyone goes home with a cookbook that includes all of the recipes the class prepared. In addition to the freedom they gain from learning new skills, many participants have discovered a new love of cooking, and interest in expanding their usual menus to include new foods, flavors and cuisines. A Reaching Out favorite, Dinner and a Movie is a very entertaining class. Participants in this class gain better social awareness by analyzing different aspects of a movie’s social interactions. Discussions are led by our clinical consultant. Dinner is included in the cost. The class works with individuals where they are at in terms of social skills, and it builds on those using the characters in the movie as a launching off point. If you love movies, this is a wonderful class.

SAM’S SUCCESS STORY

“Everyone at Jubilee is proud of Kenji’s accomplishments. We are thankful that we have had the opportunity to get to know him, and we look forward to hearing about his continued success.” -Tim Wiens, Executive Director, Jubilee Association of Maryland

KENJI’S SUCCESS STORY Kenji has been with Jubilee for three years, and he has attended many of the Reaching Out classes, including Dinner and a Movie, Together As One, and Cooking for Independence. In addition, Kenji has worked one-on-one with Jubilee staff. In his time at Jubilee, Kenji has made friends, sharpened his critical thinking skills, and worked toward increased independence. Kenji also volunteered at Project Reboot for almost 3 years, where he helped to repair broken computers and tested hard drives for refurbished machines. Now Kenji is moving into a new phase of his life, and has earned an internship at L3 Communications via Project SEARCH, where he will be working as an intern for the Montgomery County Government, installing operating systems for new computers being used by County offices.

Sam Smith is a 28-year-old Jubilee client who loves karaoke, dancing, helping others and exercising. For the past few years, Sam has been participating in the wide array of Jubilee’s Reaching Out classes that aim to improve independent living skills for adults with developmental disabilities. “Jubilee’s Reaching Out classes gave me the opportunity to get more confident with independent living skills, social skills, and most importantly, fitness skills. Without participating in Cooking for Independence, Together as One, Dinner and a Movie, and the S.P.I.R.I.T. Club, my happiness would “Jubilee is the perfect match not have continued.” for me. Thank you, to my Sam’s deep passion for exercising and roommate, Justin Frevert, and helping others learn to exercise landed him thank you, Reaching Out.” a position as one of the instructors of the -Sam Smith S.P.I.R.I.T. Club. He trains for the S.P.I.R.I.T. Club for 5 hours a week, and provides fitness training and instruction to over 40 people in 3 different locations. “Jubilee encouraged me to become a certified strength and conditioning specialist, and provided me with the opportunity have a job with the S.P.I.R.I.T. Club where I can have fun and teach others how to live healthy and active lives. I always had the ability to make my own decisions, but practice from Jubilee made me more confident and independent. I know how to make my own decisions about my health, employment, the future of my girlfriends, and if I feel like things are going in the right direction,” Sam states.

THE S.P.I.R.I.T. CLUB is an exercise and nutrition program designed specifically to meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities. S.P.I.R.I.T. is an acronym that stands for: Social, Physical, Interactive, Respectful, Inclusive, & Teamwork. The S.P.I.R.I.T. Club focuses on improving its members’ balance, stability, flexibility, agility, strength, and h cardiovascular di l endurance d d nutritional habits. Mentally and emotionally, the program is designed to encourage high levels of social interaction and integration to ensure that every member feels comfortable and excited about the healthy and active choices that they are making. Each class meets once per week and lasts for 1 hour for 8 weeks.


JUBILEE’S PARTNERSHIP WITH VOLUNTEER MARYLAND

Jubilee has worked in partnership with Volunteer Maryland to develop and expand our volunteer program. Through the work of our Volunteer Maryland Coordinator, Jubilee has built relationships with volunteer groups such as Reid Temple, the National Institutes of Health, and George Washington University, as well as volunteers from the parishes where some of our Model Housing Partnership residences are located. Volunteers from many local high schools have joined us for events and for other service learning opportunities. Volunteers have worked with Jubilee on landscaping and spring cleanup projects, painting and maintenance projects, joined us for our Car Wash, our Holiday Party, our Valentine’s Day Dance and our Cookout.

ABOUT

Joe Theismann Joe Theismann is an entrepreneur and the former star quarterback for the Washington Redskins. He spent the last two decades working for ESPN on their NFL broadcast and the NFL Network. A 1971 graduate of University of Notre Dame, Mr. Theismann received All-American honors and led the Fighting Irish to consecutive Cotton Bowls and was runner-up to Jim Plunkett in the Heismann Trophy balloting. In 2003, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. After turning down offers from the Minnesota Twins and Miami Dolphins, Joe began his pro career in the Canadian Football League, spending three years with the Toronto Argonauts before joining the Redskins in 1974. From the humble beginnings as a punt returner to Super Bowl Champion, Mr. Theismann has experienced many of the challenges we all face in our constant quest to find success, by overcoming adversity. As a 12 year NFL veteran, Mr. Theismann played in 163 consecutive games from 1974 to 1985 and holds the Redskin record for passing yards, completions and attempts. He was a two time Pro Bowl selection and led the Redskins to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII. In 1982, Joe was elected the NFL’s Man of the Year for his community service and dedication to the health and welfare of children. In 1983, he won the league’s MVP award. Then, in 1985, Joe’s career was abruptly cut short when his leg was shattered in a game against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Today, Joe oversees a popular Washington DC restaurant that bears his name. Staying true to his concern for children, Mr. Theismann is a member on the Sports Advisory Board of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

OFFICE OF THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND 20850

Isiah Leggett County Executive

May 8, 2014 Dear Friends: It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2014 Jubilee Association of Maryland’s Annual Roast honoring one of my favorite Washington Quarterback’s, Joe Theismann. Thank you, Jubilee for bringing together again this group of local sports champions, each with a demonstrated commitment to our region on and off the playing field. Larry Michael has his hands full this evening attempting to moderate this team. We are all in for a delightful evening which will bring wonderful memories while generating resources to assist some of our community’s most inspiring residents. It has been my great honor to know and work with Jubilee Association for 30 years. The professional and compassionate assistance the dedicated staff of Jubilee provides to people with developmental disabilities in our county is remarkable. The work is difficult, funding inadequate, and the need ever growing. Yet Jubilee endures in its mission of helping people with unique abilities to live full and productive lives actively engaged in their local communities. We are a better county because of Jubilee’s work and those it serves. On behalf of one million grateful citizens of Montgomery County, I extend our thanks to Joe Theismann, Larry Michael, Jeff Bostic, Mark Moseley and Rick “Doc” Walker for being good sports tonight and to the board, staff, volunteers, supporters and participants of the Jubilee Association and look forward to an enjoyable evening. Sincerely,

Isiah Leggett County Executive 26

Joe’s Visit Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Joe Theismann, will be the honoree for the 2014 Roast to benefit Jubilee Association of Maryland, a nonprofit organization that provides community living supports to adults with intellectual and otherr developmental disabilities throughout Montgomery County, Maryland. Joe visited two residences to meet some people who receive services from Jubilee and to talk with them about their lives, about Jubilee, about what they do to stay healthy, such as exercising with S.P.I.R.I.T. Club, and to film some footage for the video to be shown at the Roast on May 8th. Joe visited Greg, Craig and Andrew at the residence on Woodedge Road. Greg and Craig have rooms decorated with art and memorabilia from their favorite team, the Washington Redskins, and they were so excited for Joe to see it! Andrew also showed Joe his room, decorated with Beatles memorabilia, and they talked about their shared love of music. Joe chatted with Craig’s parents about how they have seen great benefits for their son since he moved out on his own to share his new house with Greg and Andrew and their staff person, Jonathan. The men demonstrated exercises they learned from Jared Ciner in S.P.I.R.I.T. Club, and they exercised a little with Joe. Joe also visited Joan, Holly and Elaine at their house on Kathryn Road. Last year, Holly and Elaine spoke at the Roast about how they would like to find a new house to share. This year, they showed their beautiful new house that they share with their friend, Joan, their staff person, Ziona, and Elaine’s cat, “Mittens.” The women talked about the fantastic changes they have made in healthy living in the past year. Each woman has become more fit, improved her diet, and become more active. They also belong to S.P.I.R.I.T. Club, and they all walk together throughout their neighborhood when the weather is nice. The women shared their opinions on the best quarterbacks for the Washington Redskins this season with Joe, and then he autographed photos and jerseys for them. Joe came back to the Jubilee office to meet some staff members and to sign centerpieces for the Roast tables (which will be available for sale at the event) and other Redskins items for the Silent Auction at the 2014 Jubilee Roast. Joe graciously posed for many photographs with the staff and individuals who receive services from Jubilee. It was great fun to spend the afternoon with him. We look forward to seeing him again at the Roast. We can’t wait!
