Just A Start believes that access to stable housing and sustainable careers are the essential building blocks of equitable communities. For more than 50 years, we have focused on meeting the fundamental needs of individuals and families who have been systemically denied opportunities to realize their full potential. Our programs include affordable housing, education and job training, and comprehensive support services, spanning Cambridge and beyond. We have developed and currently maintain 600 affordable apartments. To keep community members housed, we also offer financial and technical assistance to prevent evictions, and support low- and moderate-income homeowners. Finally, we prepare individuals of all ages and circumstances with the skills and knowledge they need to secure fulfilling careers, leveraging their talents to achieve economic mobility and strengthen the region’s workforce.

Just A Start strongly believes that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity, and does not permit unlawful discrimination against its employees or applicants because of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, veteran status, citizenship status, veteran status or military obligations or any other legally protected characteristics under applicable state or federal laws. We believe that diversity of employees at all levels makes us a stronger agency that can make a more meaningful contribution to our communities, and we strive to succeed in this regard.
