Our History

Casa Myrna began to take shape when activists from the Villa Victoria housing development, United South End Settlements, Casa del Sol, Old South Church, St. Stephen’s Parish, the Church of the Covenant in the Back Bay and the South End Community Health Center joined to organize and seek support throughout the South End in the early 1970s. The agency’s founding coalition was a lively, passionate and diverse group, reflecting the vibrant patchwork of people living in the community, including our namesake Myrna Vázquez.
