Building strong neighborhoods with affordable housing and community programs
Settlement Housing Fund works to build strong neighborhoods throughout New York City with a concentration of housing in the Southwest Bronx, the Lower East Side and in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Over the decades, we have worked alongside our affiliates and partners in these neighborhoods to rebuild, revitalize and infuse them with great housing and the social capital, programs and essential amenities that make these communities thrive. We have created programs for formerly homeless parents and children, young adults, and families that provide access to education, health and wellness programs, job training and employment. We help lower income residents build skills to live independently and help to connect them with opportunities for affordable housing in our own buildings and those of for-profit developers.
