United Neighborhood Houses (UNH) is a policy and social change organization representing neighborhood settlement houses that reach 765,000 New Yorkers from all walks of life. A progressive leader for more than 100 years, 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 and promote strong organizations and practices that keep neighborhoods resilient and thriving for all New Yorkers. UNH seeks a Development and Communications Associate who will develop and design content to help people learn about and be compelled to invest in UNH.

UNH recognizes that by adopting a racial equity framework, and openly acknowledging and challenging racial inequity through our work, we can play a more deliberate and intentional role in combating explicit and implicit racial biases as well as systemic racism.
