Overview and Mission
Just-A-Start envisions a world where everyone has a home, a job, a voice and a future.
Just-A-Start (JAS) is a community-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to building a better future by providing affordable housing, education, training, community engagement and supportive services.
Since 1970 JAS has been serving residents of Cambridge and surrounding communities to empower individuals and families to meet their potential.
Recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c) (3) community development corporation, JAS focuses on three major program areas: the development and operation of affordable housing; stabilization of existing housing; and education, training and job placements. Each year hundreds of individuals and families are served by Just-A-Start and given the tools and resources to grow.
