The mission of The Brick House is to support individual, family and community well being through collaboration on economic development, youth development, leadership development and education. The Brick House serves the five villages of Montague - Lake Pleasant, Millers Falls, Montague Center, Montague City and Turners Falls - and the Town of Gill.
In 1989, in response to the deaths of four women at the hands of their domestic partners, a group of concerned residents, service providers and town officials formed a coalition that sought to create a Montague-based organization that would serve the needs identified by residents. This organization, The Brick House Community Resource Center, opened its doors in 1990 to provide accessible services, respond to immediate needs and foster community organizing efforts to address longer-term solutions for change and community development. Since its founding, The Brick House has served over 2500 residents with counseling programs, education, job training, employment resources and opportunities for building community. After a decade of providing a range of services to Montague residents, The Brick House has concentrated its focus to address the underpinnings of social inequity by supporting individual and community well being through economic development, youth development, education and advocacy.
