East End House is a not-for-profit, multi-service community center and social service agency with an on-going commitment to a diverse population, providing programs and services to strengthen family and community. East End House is the center of community life, a safe haven welcoming, linking, and collaborating with individuals of all ages, their families, businesses, and community institutions to create innovative programs in pursuit of excellence on a sound fiscal basis.
Originally established in 1875, East End House is one of Greater Boston's earliest settlement houses and community centers. One hundred and twenty-nine years ago, it was a vital resource for struggling or newly immigrated individuals and families. Today it is a dynamic, multi-service community center, focused on improving self-sufficiency, providing emergency aid, and making referrals to other agencies when necessary. Consistent throughout its history is this agency's dedication to providing essential services by responding to current community needs with programs, classes, informational resources, and activities. Well-baby clinics at the turn of the century, New Deal Programs during the Great Depression, multilingual energy audits for lower-income families in the seventies, a new facility completed in 1993 - East End House has evolved with its community, ever-mindful of the development and self-determination of those it serves.
