“When I saw my apartment, I said wow! And to know it was permanent was amazing. You feel safe, you know it’s home.”
“I chose Semiperm because it’s a very friendly environment, the staff are very helpful, and I saw this as a way to be independent, another opportunity to live on my own, yet still be responsible for the everyday things that I need to do.”
“I raised my children in this community and can proudly say I’m seeing my grandchildren being raised here as well.”
“It’s a neighborhood, it’s a family. Everyone is connected through New Settlement.”
“Settlement Housing has always been an innovator in community development, producing not only quality housing but the benefits to communities that flow from that housing.”
