Now in our 100th year, UNH is stewarding a new era for New York’s settlement house movement. We mobilize our members and their communities to advocate for good public policies locally and statewide and we promote strong organizations and practices that keep neighborhoods resilient and thriving for all New Yorkers.
UNH leads advocacy and partners with our members on a broad range of issues including civic and community engagement, neighborhood affordability, healthy aging, early childhood education, adult literacy, and youth development. We also provide customized professional development and peer learning to build the skills and leadership capabilities of settlement house staff at all levels.
Our members, embedded in their neighborhoods, act as community hubs, building connections that bridge generations, cultures, races and socio-economic statuses.
We greatly value our supporters—whether they’re making a donation, volunteering, lending their voice at a rally, or simply sharing our updates online. We invite you to support UNH become one yourself and help us carry out our mission.
