Settlement Housing Fund exists to create and maintain economically and ethnically diverse affordable housing, with community programs and neighborhood amenities throughout New York City. Since 1969, Settlement Housing Fund has developed 56 projects with over 8,700 apartments -- rentals, cooperatives, and two-family houses -- that are home to more than 25,000 low and middle income residents, including formerly homeless people. Whenever possible, we incorporate commercial developments and community programs for children, young adults and families that provide opportunities for educational success and upward mobility. All our work involves sustainable rental housing and truly affordable home ownership opportunities. Our latest projects include housing for formerly homeless single parent families with supportive services that are helping them become independent, and the construction of a new Community Center and public school in the Bronx, where we have worked for two decades.
