For more than 100 years, the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House has served as a hub and support system for the one of the most diverse communities in Cambridge. Our facility, built in 1807, is a national Historic Landmark.

Once the home of the noted feminist and journalist Sarah Margaret Fuller, it was reinvented in 1902 as a Settlement House, providing information and services to help immigrants assimilate into American culture. Today our house on Cherry Street provides critical resources and a broad range of programs each year for more than 14,000 people of all ages—from infants to elders. 

We have a busy food pantry; after school and summer programs for children; outreach to young adults at risk; health related programs for seniors; community organizing; a drop-in technology center, free computer classes, and English conversation groups.  We also host community-wide events and a broad variety of workshops. Collaborative programs for young parents, men of color, and people with diabetes have helped us reach hundreds of additional folks each year.

We invite you to learn more about our programs and our community and hope you will visit our home at 71 Cherry St. in Cambridge.
