Welcome to the South Boston Neighborhood House!

The Mission of the South Boston Neighborhood House (The Ollie) is “to support family and neighborhood life in South Boston.” This means we have something for everyone! As a settlement house, we look to meet the needs of the community and offer programs for everyone in South Boston: infants, children, teens, families, and seniors.

The South Boston Neighborhood House is the oldest continuously-operated community based non-profit in South Boston, and we’ve been going strong for 115 years! Find out how The Ollie can help you and your family today.
