During these unprecedented times of COVID-19, we wanted to inform you on what the Margaret Fuller House is doing in order to assist residents of Cambridge. Our food pantry remains open four days a week (Wednesday thru Saturday) and welcomes all residents. Our Youth Services and Community Advancement services have gone virtual! Our Peace Academy is hosting live after school sessions every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday! Please reach out to Megan Ryan (Program Manager) for further information.
The Community Advancement team is offering virtual services to help sign-up for unemployment assistance, emergency relief funds, and SNAP benefits. Lastly, the Margaret Fuller House is proud to announce that we are also offering emergency relief funding for those who need help paying rent/ eviction notices, utilities, needed medications, and food. Please reach out to the Community Advancement team if you need help.
The Margaret Fuller House and staff are happy to assist you and your family during these challenging times.

The New England Aquarium paid a visit to the house today to let our summer campers interact with their portable touch tanks. There were lots of fascinating sea-creatures to observe up-close. Thanks to Aquarium staffers Denny, Gisleyne, and Megan for making the experience educational AND fun!
A group of students from the Harvard Medical School stopped by yesterday to spend some time with Selvin Chambers and the staff at Margaret Fuller House. The group got to learn about our work in the community and the challenges facing many people in our area. They got some career advice and were treated to some great local food from Izzy’s. Thanks for stopping by – you’re always welcome at the House!
