In 1893, Lillian Wald founded the Henry Street Settlement to help build better lives for the inhabitants of Manhattan's Lower East Side. Today, a community mental health clinic, a battered women's shelter, transitional residences for homeless families and single women, three day care centers, a senior center, programs and services for older adults, a multi-disciplinary arts center, arts-in-education programming, home care initiatives, and a broad spectrum of educational, employment, recreational, camping, community service, after-school, counseling, and leadership development programs for youth are all a part of the Henry Street Settlement. While focused on the Lower East Side, Settlement programs reach all of New York City's five boroughs
including New York City public schools, housing developments, and transitional shelters. Through a commitment to its community, its willingness to change and adapt and by consistently offering diverse, creative, innovative, and effective programs to a multi-ethnic and multicultural population, the Henry Street Settlement realizes its core mission to challenge the effects of urban poverty by providing individuals and families with essential social and cultural services.
