Supporting low-income and immigrant families has been the core of EPH since its inception. We offer four subsidized programs; Preschool, After School, Camp, and a Food Pantry. We serve 40 preschoolers and 52 school-age children, with a majority (67%) of our students receiving subsidized services through the Dept. of Early Education and Care. EPH was established in 1886 as a settlement house in the West End of Boston and offered a kindergarten and community theater. In the 1950’s city officials began planning for a “new Boston,” which called for razing the area. Many families chose to resettle in Somerville, only three miles away. Following the lead of those it served, EPH also moved to Somerville in 1979 to continue its mission.
