What’s New in Settlement?
The Gables is conducting bilingual student surveys and putting final details in place for this year’s adult ESL and citizenship classes. It was a challenge to host classes in 2020 and we missed interacting with our students. If you know a potential student for our program, please feel free to forward this survey or share their contact information with us.
Besides education, one of the biggest needs for the immigrant community is food security. Staff member Bruce Campbell is a volunteer with My Brother’s Table in Lynn. A small group of volunteers meets monthly at The Gables to pack meal kits for those in need. We strongly encourage you to reach out to your local food pantry or food donation program and see how you can help make a difference in your community.
While we are closed to the public, The House of the Seven Gables is also happy to offer our multi-purpose space to organizations making a difference in the community. For more information, please contact our Functions Manager, Deb Costa.
