The House of the Seven Gables announced in March 2010 that after careful research and consideration the Board of Directors has decided to refocus its critical mission of community support by eliminating the after school and camp programs offered for many years at The Settlement, and instead work with the community to find an educational need that is not receiving the support or attention it deserves.The Settlement, founded in 1910 by Salem philanthropist Caroline Emmerton, originally offered programs to assimilate Salem’s newly arriving Polish and Eastern European immigrants into American culture. English classes, job training, cooking and childcare were a few of the program offerings. Over the past 100 years, the program changed into a well respected, but small childcare program.By refocusing the Settlement Mission, The Gables can better serve Salem by leveraging its strengths as a premier literary and historic site. Partnering with direct service providers who are currently working with the underserved allows The Gables to be more responsive to community needs now and in the future,” said Anita Blackaby, Executive Director of the Gables.
