From Wicked Local Cambridge:
The city of Cambridge recently announced four local nonprofit partnerships will receive $30,000 planning grants from the city’s Community Benefits Fund.
The fund was established to utilize funding from developers, received through zoning amendments or other agreements, to address the unmet needs of Cambridge residents, particularly low-income families with children.
The Partnership led by the Just-A-Start Corporation, “Just-A-Start, Cambridge Family & Children Services, Cambridge Health Alliance, Cambridge Housing Authority and Institute for Health & Recovery,” will use EMPath’s Mobility Mentoring model to achieve increased family stability and empowerment through housing resources, job training, financial coaching, health and wellness and family stability. The Mobility Mentoring model uses one-on-one coaching to assist families in setting and attaining unique goals that will help them progress toward economic independence.
