Jubilee Fund investors helped keep critical, subsidized childcare spaces available.
In 2016, Chapman Day Care was notified by the school division that the school they had occupied since 1984 would be closing and their current lease would not be renewed. They were offered three classrooms at Royal School, which required renovations to meet codes.
The daycare had planned ahead for an emergency like this by saving an emergency fund. The savings, however, were not enough to upgrade the classrooms and meet licensing requirements. After lobbying efforts failed, the volunteer Board was pressed to continue to provide this important service to parents and the community.
Jubilee Fund was approached, and through a loan guarantee with Assiniboine Credit Union the renovations were completed and the low-income subsidized spaces at the daycare were saved.
