New Settlement Apartments is a not-for-profit housing and community service organization located in an under-served area of the southwest Bronx. The organization has a 20-year track record of active commitment to neighborhood revitalization and community development, including working towards excellence in community public schools. An integral part of the progressive housing philosophy embraced by New Settlement Apartments is that "housing is not just bricks and mortar." The organization's mission is not only to rebuild and maintain a sizable portion of the housing stock in its neighborhood, but also to support the rebuilding of the neighborhood's social capital. Year-round community services and education programs are structured in direct response to the interests of neighborhood residents, who are primarily low-income Blacks and Latinos, including many new immigrants. Programs serving over 4,700 youth and adults each year are staffed by paid professionals and dedicated volunteers.
