WHAT WE DO
Union Settlement has been providing essential services to East Harlem Older Adults for over a century, and our Meals on Wheels program has served homebound seniors for over 40 years. Our senior population of over 2,000 seniors relies heavily on Union Settlement to help meet their everyday needs. We offer healthy aging programs at our four Older Adult centers, NORC and assistance to the homebound elderly. We connect older adults with transportation, counseling, nutritious meals and volunteer opportunities.
