Wishing a very Happy 100th Birthday on July 17th to a longtime resident of Jamaica Hills Milda Kostecki.  


Dear Neighbors,

We hope you are staying safe and taking all the necessary precautions to reduce transmission of Covid-19.

To support our neighbors in this time, the Jamaica Hills Association is offering to be a clearinghouse for those neighbors who need help and those neighbors willing to offer their services.  This includes picking up basic groceries, prescriptions, or even receiving a regular phone call to relieve our being without social contacts.

For those who are willing to do errands or other chores for neighbors, please write to the JHA at and give us your name, street, and phone number.

For those who would like to request help, please write to us and we will send your request out to the volunteers.  Please include your name, street address, phone number, and the nature of your request.

Be assured your requests will remain confidential and only when someone volunteers to help, will your details be sent to them so that you both can arrange the details.

It is a stressful time for all and we know community bonds will make us all stronger as we navigate through the unknown days ahead.


The Jamaica Hills Association Board


Jamaica Hills is part of Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Bounded by Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Pond and the Emerald Necklace, Allandale Farm and Larz Anderson Park, Jamaica Hills’s special feature is its treasured greenspace in close proximity to the richly diverse restaurants and shops in Jamaica Plain’s urban center.

The Jamaica Hills Association (JHA) is a longstanding civic organization that serves many needs in our community. The goal of our interactive, frequently updated website is to inform residents, facilitate social interaction, and encourage community service.

To contribute your ideas, suggestions, skills and talents to our community, we encourage you contact us at


Please do not forget to get out and vote!  We are going to do a Food Drive and donate to the First Church in Jamaica Plain’s Food Pantry.  They are very excited to receive this much needed food.  We will be collecting donations on Election Day at the Manning School.  Please bring a can or two when you come to vote!
