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.
