Union Settlement is the oldest social service provider in East Harlem, an area rich in cultural diversity, but one of the lowest-income communities in the New York metropolitan region.  Established in 1895, Union Settlement offers a broad range of education, wellness and community-building programs to local residents, including early childhood education, youth afterschool and summer programs, college prep, job readiness, adult education, mental health counseling, senior centers, Meals on Wheels, small business development and more. Union Settlement assists over 10,000 individuals every year from more than a dozen locations in East Harlem, and its programs are designed to support the needs of every generation and culture.
