A Letter from Our Executive Director
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
120 Years of Service to our community, quite amazing!
Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House (MFNH) is the 11th oldest Settlement House in the United States---compelling and relevant today, with an even brighter future.
As this organization's leader, I thank the outstanding Board of Directors, committed staff, dedicated volunteers and donors and the Cambridge community for its authentic support and caring about MFNH and the neighbors that we serve.
Since 1902, Margaret Fuller House has assisted the most vulnerable people of our community, spearheading the critical services to help many thousands of families, children, and seniors. The Margaret Fuller House is a community treasure that embodies an incredible mission in which people work together to build an equitable, diverse, engaged and flourishing community in Cambridge and the Greater Boston Community it serves.
These are challenging, difficult, and at times, overwhelming days for our neighbors. Every single day we experience what social and economic inequity really means for our neighbors: not enough food, unable to pay rent or utility bills, working long hours at lower wage jobs that don’t cover the cost of living in Cambridge and children anxious and stressed as they see their Moms struggle.
We are proud to be part of providing solutions to these challenges and invite you to join us.
