Our mission is to support individual, family and community well being through collaboration on economic development, youth development, leadership development and education.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
The Brick House will be operating with the following changes:
The Teen Center is physically closed for regular drop-in hours due to COVID-19 precautions. Join Teen Center staff for virtual teen center drop-in hours on ZOOM from 3:30-4:30 pm Tuesday and Thursday. We’d love to see you!
Teen center staff are available to talk and answer any concerns that come up for youth during this stressful time. Friend us on Facebook (Jane Brick House, Kaleb Brickhouse, and Dan Brickhouse) or call the Teen Center cell#: 413-800-5705.
We are offering bagged lunch and breakfast distribution (from Gill-Montague Schools) and prepared meals and produce from local restaurants and farms (when available) curbside in front of the Brick House on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:10-2pm. Please stop by! We want to hear how you are doing and how we can help.

Staff will be available to text/call during regular business hours (9am-5pm)
New Executive Director, Kwamane Harris joins the Brick House
We are thrilled to announce the selection of a new Executive Director to lead the Brick House Community Resource Center. After a long process, the Brick House Community Resource Center board and executive search committee has chosen Kwamane Harris to serve as the organization’s new executive director.
In recent weeks, high profile cases of police violence against Black Americans and the resulting worldwide protest movement have once again brought the issue of structural anti-Black racism to the forefront of national consciousness.
We want to say without question or qualification that the Brick House Community Resource Center believes that all Black lives matter, and we stand in full solidarity with our Black program participants, team members, and local communities in the fight against police brutality and injustice.
Expanding Food Access
In these uncertain times, The Brick House wants to expand food access to communities in and around Turners Falls as much as possible.
Are you or someone you know in need of prepared meals, groceries, or seed/seedlings?
We are offering weekly meal delivery and pick-up. No proof of income or residency required.
