Union Settlement Association
Opportunity. Community. East Harlem.
Union Settlement Association creates opportunity in East Harlem by offering comprehensive programs that help underserved residents improve their skills and build better lives for themselves and their families.
Union Settlement has been a mainstay of the predominantly immigrant community of East Harlem since 1895. Today, we are the area’s largest social service agency, serving more than 10,000 of our neighbors each year with effective programs in education, childcare, youth development, senior services, job training, the arts, nutrition, counseling and community development.
Join us for the 21st Annual Ethnic Festival street fair! More information here.
