Our Story

Since its founding, operating out of a single Hopkinton basement more than twenty years ago, Project Just Because has constantly pushed to do more, to offer more services, to reach more families.

Now we face our biggest push ever.

Project Just Because is building a state-of-the-art facility, a facility that the Project will own, the home we need to expand our mission for years to come.

But we cannot do it alone.

This past year especially has exposed the depth of need in our community, and we have pushed to help meet that need.

To help a mother fleeing domestic abuse who needs new clothes, sheets, housewares, and toiletries as she works to put her life back together.

To help a laid off father across the state whose local pantries are unable to provide the fresh, nutritious, specialized food his children need.

We have pushed and grown to serve over 40,000 families throughout Massachusetts.

We cannot continue scrambling for space and dedicating more and more of our budgets to escalating rents; we need a permanent home.

We need you to donate so that together we can take this exciting leap forward.

We need you to help us build our new home!
