2016 was a particularly exciting year for University Settlement. Not only did we reflect on our long history as we celebrated our 90th anniversary, but we are also looking ahead. This past year was monumental as we completed our Strategic Plan which will guide us in our efforts for years to come. We were also fortunate to be selected as a Social Venture Partners (SVP) investee. This alliance will provide University Settlement with the vast network of SVP professionals who will collaborate with staff and the Board of Directors in developing strategies to best serve the needs of the Broadway-Slavic
This past year marked major milestones in programming. University Settlement served more community residents than ever before, nearly 15,000 individuals, with a broad array of services, including hunger relief, distribution of school uniforms, strengthening families, and financial literacy, just to name a few.By providing comprehensive services, we provide tools and services to empower residents, youth, families, young adults, and the elderly.
Throughout its history, University Settlement has been a constant beacon and trusted mainstay of the community, with an ongoing and unwavering commitment to residents of the Broadway-Slavic Village neighborhood.
We are ever mindful of our history and motivated now and into the future to be responsive and flexible in meeting the needs of the community. That steadfast assurance to the provision of quality programs and services is made possible by our expert staff, committed Board of Directors, generous contributions of our benefactors and funders, dedicated volunteers, and collaborative partners.
Thank you for your commitment, generosity, and investment in University Settlement as together we provide individuals and families, the means to learn, grow and thrive.
