About University Settlement
University Settlement forges partnerships between neighbors on the Lower East Side and in Brooklyn, engaging more than 40,000 New Yorkers in efforts to build stronger communities every year.
Established in 1886 as the first Settlement House in the United States, we bring the values of that movement into the 21st century by:
- Fighting poverty and systematic inequality with responsive programs
- Engaging all members of the community from newborns to elders
- Joyfully nurturing the whole person by addressing basic needs including food, education, culture, learning, and community.
We infuse a commitment to civic engagement, equity, and communal action into each of our programs, which include:
