The mission of the Margaret Fuller House is to strengthen and empower youth, families, and community residents. We work to address the economic, social and political inequities that shape the lives and futures of Port/Area IV residents.
We had an incredible week with the volunteers from MIT’s Alternative Spring Break program! These remarkable students chose to spend their spring break with us, helping to finish a lot of key projects. They helped with building shelves, organizing and cleaning, database management work and even a Sweet Soul Supper mailing! They took a special interest in learning about the Port/Area IV neighborhood, about some of the children and older people in the community, and about how small non-profit community centers like the Margaret Fuller House operate. They brought a lot of positive energy and a special enthusiasm to the house that the kids and staff really benefited from. We wish them all the best of luck in their future endeavors and hope to see them at the Fuller House again soon!
