Mission Statement

As a community development corporation (CDC), Just-A-Start (JAS) is dedicated to building the housing security and economic stability of low- to moderate-income people in Cambridge and nearby communities. Through comprehensive and integrated programs, JAS creates and maintains affordable housing, provides housing resources and services, offers education and workforce training for youth and adults, and builds community engagement. JAS’s vision is a better future for each and every community member: a secure home, a sustaining career, and engagement in the community.

Description

Just-A-Start (JAS) was founded in 1968 as a community revitalization and youth training program focused on improving Cambridge’s then-struggling Wellington-Harrington neighborhood. Since then, JAS has grown into a multi-service community development corporation (CDC) 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 exacerbated problems accessing affordable housing, which contributes to the economic insecurity of many residents. JAS hopes to counter this trend by helping low- to moderate-income individuals and families build economic resiliency to attain short-term financial stability and long-term upward mobility.
