Northwestern University Settlement House
Northwestern University Settlement has been serving needy families on the west-side of Chicago for almost 125 years. The Settlement operates on the principal of individual and family self-help, and the philosophy that every person deserves to maximize his or her potential to become a productive member of society. Through more than 70 programs and services, the Settlement serves approximately 8,000 low-income neighbors each year in three key areas: assistance for the immediate short-term crisis; knowledge, opportunities, and support to break out of poverty over the long-term; and access to a network of additional programs and services.
