Casserly House

Organization Description: 

Casserly House provides a wide variety of services to the Roslindale community. Monday through Friday from 9-12 am, there are English language and literacy classes for the adults living in the neighborhood. Children in grades 2-5 come to Casserly House Monday through Thursday afternoons for the After School Homework Program, which runs from 2:30-5 pm. Volunteers not only provide homework assistance and tutoring to the students, but they also serve as positive role models and friends.

The house is currently staffed by Sister Nancy Braceland, CSJ and Brian Ahern, a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. We rely on the wonderful generosity of many volunteers who come regularly to teach English to adults or assist children with their homework. In addition, the Casserly House Advisory Board, which is made up of 10 individuals from the greater Roslindale community, meets three times a year to provide assistance and guidance in order that we might best fulfill the mission of Casserly House. We are very grateful to all those who give of their time to make this ministry possible!
