About us

University Settlement, founded in 1886, is America's first social settlement. Located on the Lower East Side, it has always served a largely immigrant community; today that community is predominantly Asian and Latino. Our programs include adult literacy classes, mental health counseling, child care, housing assistance, job training, after-school and summer camp programs, youth development, senior services, arts programs, and a credit union. But University Settlement has always approached its mission as more than just serving the community. We consider it our responsibility to create new programs that become prototypes for other agencies and communities nationwide, helping to frame public policy discussions on the most pressing issues of the time.
