Housing Services staff work with clients at JAS's office, at district courts, and at other meeting locations that are convenient for them. Appointments are required. For more information contact Elizabeth Winston, Housing and Mediation Services Program Manager, at email@example.com or 617-918-7518.
We can prevent homelessness through mediation to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords and by administering emergency financial assistance. JAS mediators also resolve qualifying consumer disputes referred by district courts or the MA Attorney General's Office. JAS offers an array of services to meet the needs of low-income homeowners in Cambridge, including advisory services for condominium association finances, management, compliance, and leadership development.
We can also help low to moderate income residents with finding affordable apartments, homeownership opportunities, and housing assistance.
