Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation Grants $50,000 to Just A Start to support its New Economic Mobility Hub at Rindge Commons
New England Council member, Rockland Trust has announced a grant of $50,000 to Just A Start. The grant will be used to help support Just A Start new Economic Mobility Hub near the Alewife MBTA station in North Cambridge.
The new Economic Mobility Hub will be a 70,000-square-foot, mixed-use project. The goal of the project is to create a thriving and equitable community to accelerate economic mobility. Once completed the building will include 24 affordable apartments, four preschool classrooms, and a 19,000-square-foot training center. This new home for Just A Start will offer workshops and other programming to serve 2,800 people in Cambridge and Metro-North communities. The project will be open in April 2024.
Andrea Borowiecki, Vice President of Charitable Giving and Community Engagement at Rockland Trust, said, “Our Charitable Foundation is honored to contribute to the development of this important project for the Greater Boston communities. The project perfectly aligns with what Rockland Trust as a community-orientated bank believes in, by providing resources to our neighbors that enable them to flourish to their full potential.”
The New England Council would like to commend Rockland Trust for its commitment to serving its local community.
