For 116 years, Union Settlement Association has worked with and for the struggling community of East Harlem. A community mainstay, we seek to foster leadership and self-sufficiency by assisting our neighbors in building better lives for themselves and their families.

One of the area’s largest social service agencies, we serve more than 13,000 residents each year through a wide array of programs, including: Early Childhood Services (six childcare/Head Start centers and a Family Childcare Network), Youth Services (after-school and summer programs, Tech Lab, tutoring, sexual literacy, college readiness, dance, theater, workshops), Adult Education (Basic Education in Spanish and English, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Citizenship, GED preparation, citizenship, computer skills), Senior Services (five senior centers, Meals on Wheels, transportation program, health and fitness), Mental Health (Johnson Counseling Center, Children’s Blended Case Management) and AIDS and HIV Services. Two separately incorporated entities, the Union Settlement Federal Credit Union and Union Settlement Home Care, complement our services.

Agencywide, we have approximately 250 full-time and 130 part-time employees, large numbers of whom are bilingual and/or are East Harlem residents or natives. We also provide temporary part-time employment to more than 150 students each year. A trusted community institution, we meet the scrupulous Standards for Charity Accountability developed by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
