Founded in 1885 as one of Boston's earliest settlement houses, Ellis Memorial ("Ellis") is a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in the city's South End neighborhood. We provide high quality early education and care for infants, toddlers and preschool children, out-of-school time programs for youth in grades K through 7 at sites in the South End and Roxbury, and an adult day health program for disabled or elderly adults.

Ellis predominantly serves low-income, culturally diverse families from the Boston neighborhoods of the South End, Roxbury, Dorchester and South Boston. We strengthen our city’s low-income working families by helping individuals of all ages make the most of their potential, as reflected in our mission statement: For over a century, Ellis has worked to strengthen Boston's inner city working families with high quality education and care for children, youth and vulnerable adults. The goal of all our programs is to engage, educate and empower.
