Who we are

Hill House is a team of passionate administrators, instructors, board members and volunteers working to fund and execute service activities in order to meet the diverse social, educational, cultural and recreational needs of individuals and families residing in Boston’s downtown neighborhoods. Through quality programs, collaborative partnerships and volunteer support, Hill House seeks to build and foster a strong sense of urban community and improve quality of life for residents of all ages. Learn more.

Winter registration is open to the entire community.
With the weather starting to get a little chillier, Boston starts thinking ahead to the colder months. Begin planning your child's winter schedule before the chill creeps up on us - winter registration opened for members on October 18 and non-members on October 20! There are plenty of programs and athletics to choose from - browse through all of our offerings today to see what's in store. 

Volunteer with your family to help others this Thanksgiving.

Hill House invites you and your family to volunteer with us on Sunday, November 13 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm to instill the importance of giving back to the community to your young ones. We'll be putting together bags of donated Thanksgiving essentials for Project Hope. Interested in helping out but unable to make it to the event? Visit our Amazon wishlist to see the items we need most and have them shipped straight to Hill House. We'll take single donations or the items that are listed in bulk - donations of the listed items of any kind are so appreciated!

Support Hill House's Annual Appeal!

Hill House's program fees fund about two-thirds of our operating budget and we rely on the generosity of donors to fund the remaining 30% each year. Support from the community helps us compensate our dedicated staff and instructors, provide program scholarships, serve monthly meals to neighborhood seniors, and offer free events and activities. Help support your backyard in the city and Donate Now!
