Deresso Family

“I now have the American dream…owning my own home. I appreciate the efforts of Just-A-Start and the City of Cambridge for helping me become a homeowner. Now, I can provide for my family and live successfully.” Six years ago, Mr. Deresso and his family moved to the United States of America from Ethiopia in the hope of seeking better opportunities for his wife and two teenage sons. Upon moving to the United States both Mr. Deresso and his wife were faced with challenges to find a safe environment for their family and an affordable place to rent. Before buying his condominium, the Deresso’s rent payments were more than their mortgage payments are now. “After paying rent you own nothing, when paying a mortgage you own something.”  One day, a friend of the family referred Mr.Deresso to Just-A-Start Corporation for the homeownership program. After going through the lottery homeownership process, Mr.Deresso and his family are now happy to live in their new home at Columbia Court. “Thanks to Just-A-Start and the City of Cambridge, I now have the American dream…owning my own home.”

Rosa – A Homeowner and 402 Rindge Ave. Story

“Single mom’s can do it.” After years of experiencing difficulty in attaining homeownership, Rosa found herself at ease when Just-A-Start’s homeownership program was introduced to her. As a native of the Dominican Republic, Rosa is a single mother of a 16 year old son. Currently, Rosa is the homeowner of one of Just-A-Start’s condominium units in East Cambridge. After going through a divorce, Rosa was living with her family until she was able to get her own unit as a renter in one of Just-A-Start’s rental developments, 402 Rindge Avenue. During her 7 years living at 402 Rindge, Rosa was able to receive free training and classes to learn about becoming a homeowner. It was at that point in time that Rosa started to realize the importance and value of owning her own home and decided to get more information. Rosa knew that she wanted her son to have his own space and the only way to do that was to purchase her own home. Rosa feels like she has accomplished many goals as a result of owning her own home. Rosa and her son are happy to be living in their own home. She is glad they went through the homeownership program and would encourage anyone in her shoes to do the same. “Single mom’s can do it!”Read more
