Get Involved

It was through the sheer determination of compassionate and concerned individuals that Abby’s House (Abby Kelley Foster House, Inc.) came to be in 1976. And each year since, the Abby’s House community has expanded. We depend on the support of the community and are grateful to everyone who has given of their time, made a donation, and shared our mission with others. It is that continuous support that has sustained us and allowed us to grow over the years.
