Haley House



Haley House uses food with purpose and the power of community to break down barriers between people, empower individuals, and strengthen neighborhoods. We believe in radical solutions: solving problems at their root by challenging attitudes that perpetuate suffering and building alternative models.

Founded as a “house of hospitality” in 1966, Haley House has grown into a multifaceted organization deeply rooted in the South End and Roxbury. Today our work falls into five interconnected categories: direct services (soup kitchen, food pantry), permanent affordable housing (110+ units in scattered South End sites), urban agriculture (McKinley Garden school plot in the South End, an urban farm in Roxbury), education and training (Take Back the Kitchen cooking classes for youth and Life Foundations Training for returning citizens), and a social enterprise restaurant (Haley House Bakery Café, operations suspended January 2022).
