We have an update on the United South End Settlements (USES) Vision125 strategic initiative. As we shared at our most recent community meeting in October, we are exploring the creation of a new Harriet Tubman House at our existing 48 Rutland Street location, which will be a comprehensive campus for our programs. At the same time, we are seeking proposals for 566 Columbus Avenue to fund the expansion at Rutland, expand services to children and families, and secure our financial future.

We have finalized our Request for Proposals (RFP) for 566 Columbus Avenue. Any questions regarding the request for proposals should go to Michael Byrne ( or Tom Greeley ( at Newmark Knight. We are committed to an open and transparent process and are excited to share this with you.

The latest information regarding our strategic vision is available here on theVision125 site, If you have any questions, please reach out to us at or (617) 830-5261.

We greatly appreciate your continued interest and support, and will continue to keep you updated. We look forward to hosting another community meeting in early 2019.
