New York

I had the pleasure of working for University Settlement and United Neighborhood Houses from 1997-2002. My job took me to a number of different settlement houses throughout the city and I got to know many of the programs they run. Settlement houses and their staffs are New York City’s unsung heroes. They make a difference in the lives of all New Yorkers, not just those in need.
