About Living Safely in Jackson Square Coalition

The Living Safely in Jackson Square (LSJS) Coalition is a cross- sector partnership in the Jackson Square area of Jamaica Plain with a goal to build a holistic approach for supporting residents in Jackson Square, with a particular focus on families, children, and youth. How? We will do this by collectively connecting JS families to resources/services that increase family and child resilience, empowering resident leaders, and increasing access to youth programming that will lead to positive life outcomes.
