Freedom House is a community based nonprofit organization with a long history of service to Boston’s urban communities. Our mission is to promote educational excellence, economic self-sufficiency, community engagement and social justice in Boston’s most distressed urban neighborhoods. We achieve our mission through the provision of: targeted educational programs (REACH Institute), civic engagement programming (the Snowden Center for Civic Engagement and Action) and community resources for life long learning. Situated in Grove Hall on the Roxbury/Dorchester line, Freedom House has an extraordinarily rich heritage of addressing issues of educational achievement and social justice.Given the central role computers play in everyday life, communities must get the most out of every opportunity and resource available for their residents. Whether it is free computing time, classes on computing basics or tools to strengthen and enhance skills, Freedom House is providing support to help people thrive in the information age.On any given day, dozens of our neighbors visit the Timothy Smith Computer Learning and Educational Center computer labs to look for jobs, find a recipe or catch up on current events. This is but one way we help communities stay connected to the world. There is no charge to use the lab, and it is open to the public. While visiting the lab, we ask that you observe the lab policies. If you would like to register or learn more about the programs, contact (617) 445-3700 as soon as possible.
