The mission of South Boston Neighborhood House is “to support family and neighborhood life in South Boston.”
One of Boston’s original settlement houses, South Boston Neighborhood House has been an anchor in one of Boston’s most at-risk neighborhoods since 1901. Depended upon widely by the community for its ability to respond in real time to crises as well as build bridges and re-build broken lives, the Neighborhood House serves 3,000 individuals annually through community activism and programs for preschoolers to seniors.
All Neighborhood House programs: “Jet Set” Senior Program, Adolescent Services, Early Education and Care, Before & After School Age Programs, Early Books--our family reading program, and Community Outreach share a strategic focus on education. Beginning with the infants and toddlers of Early Books and continuing all the way up to the senior “Jet Setters,” our mandate is to promote the healthy development of families and the community in which they live.
