Elizabeth Peabody House
Under the leadership of the exceedingly energetic Selvin Chamber, the Elizabeth Peabody House represents a spectacular resource for Somerville residents. Created in 1895 during the settlement movement, the Peabody House is an avenue for immigrants and new residents to attain a wide variety of community resources. A focal point of social services, infant and toddler care, summer programs, after school care and a hulking food pantry are all on offer. The entire facility is brightly painted and adorned with child-made crafts. Scholarships and subsidies commonly help fund enrollment, and the staff is humbly committed to their mission. This non-profit is a truly a special place indeed.
