Who We Are

Project Just Because, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization serving the needs of Massachusetts residents.

What We Do

We manage numerous year-long and seasonal programs that are offered to all Massachusetts residents in need. We are committed to helping the most vulnerable individuals and families. Our goal is to provide every person that walks in the door with what they need. They receive an experience that is conducted with compassion and dignity and that is respectful of culture and diversity.

Why We Need You

We have dramatically expanded our program offerings and are serving more clients than ever. We need your financial support to continue to help these neighbors in need. Project Just Because is 100% donation-dependent, with 96% of your dollar going directly into our programming.
