Just-A-Start Corporation

Just-A-Start (JAS) was founded in 1968 as a community revitalization and youth training program and has since grown into a multi-service agency offering a wide variety of housing, programs, and community resources. JAS’s primary service area is Cambridge, a city where economic growth has created substantial wealth, but this has, contributed to the housing and economic insecurity of many residents. JAS is dedicated to building the housing security and economic stability of low- to moderate-income people in Cambridge and nearby communities. Through innovative, comprehensive, and integrated programs, JAS provides and preserves affordable housing, offers education and workforce training for youth and adults, and builds community engagement. JAS’s vision is a better future for all of its constituents: a secure home, a sustaining career, and engagement in the community.
