Jubilee Arts is a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Newborn Holistic Ministries, Inc. founded in 1996 by life-long community resident C.W. Harris. Located in Baltimore City's underserved communities of Sandtown-Winchester and Upton, Newborn follows a mission to preserve and enrich life in its communities by providing services that will enable residents to meet their material, social, and spiritual needs. In 2000, Newborn created Martha's Place, a transitional program to meet the need for long-term recovery services for women. In 2008, Newborn continued its work to enrich life in the community through the development of Jubilee Arts.
