The properties that comprise the present Jubilee Homes facilities were originally owned by a group of charitable investors led by Bill Lane Doulos and operated by a non-profit corporation, Jubilee Enterprises, in conjunction with All Saints Church, Pasadena.

In 2002, the Transitional Housing Program was formally adopted by the Church of Our Saviour, and Bill was employed as Director of Jubilee Homes. Titles to the properties—El Nido House and Apartments, Fair Oaks House, Raymond House, and Washington House—were eventually transferred to the Church of Our Saviour.
Jubilee Homes presently provides housing for ten women and forty men, is faith-based without sanctimony, and is virtually self-supporting through its own income and from the generous and dedicated contributions of our donors, friends, and community partners. Today, as its founder Rev. Canon Bill Doulos transitions into retirement, Rev. Tim Hartley's vision and caretaking will ensure that Jubilee Homes continues to provide a helping hand for those on the path to sober living for years to come.

About The House

The Rev. Canon Bill Lane Doulos purchased his first home, now the Raymond House, in 1983 for $100,000. The first in a series of FOUR sober living houses, it was a 3,500 sq. ft. home in disrepair and in foreclosure: the walls and the roof of the interior were rotted away, the front door was makeshift plywood, and a hay barn in the backyard that had been used to house a carriage and horses had to be removed. The Raymond House was originally built by the Huggins Shoe Store family in the 1890s, until they closed their doors for good in 1985. Today, the Raymond House is home to eleven men with a promise to gain control of their lives through sobriety.


About The House

The Rev. Canon Doulos then purchased the Fair Oaks house. Originally built by a physician and his wife, Dr. and Mrs. Haines used their home as part medical office and part home. The refinancing of the Raymond House allowed for a $10,000.00 down payment, however, the bank turned down the request and the house sat idle. A year later in 1984, after the passing of Mrs. Haines, the Haines children contacted Rev. Doulos to see if his interest remained in purchasing the property. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, the Fair Oaks House is home to eleven men working hard to remain sober and drug-free.


About The House

In 1987, with the help of friend-investors, The Rev. Doulos purchased a six-unit apartment building with a front house, named the El Nido House, in east Pasadena. The El Nido House today is home to eighteen men on their road to recovery and sober living.


About The House

A duplex with two rear-apartments was a foreclosed property The Rev. Doulos also came upon and purchased in the early 1990s, called the Washington House. The Washington House assists fourteen women to overcome their addictions and is the only one of the homes to house women exclusively.
