A pioneering not-for-profit affordable housing developer and community programs initiator in New York City, Settlement Housing Fund, Inc. has worked since 1969 to create more than 8,700 apartments through 64 affordable rental and homeownership development projects. Settlement Housing Fund presently owns and maintains 36 buildings containing 1,979 apartments in various locations, with concentrations of housing and programs in the Mt. Eden section of the Bronx, Crown Heights in Brooklyn, the Two Bridges neighborhood on the Lower East Side, as well as at other sites throughout Manhattan with a growing portfolio. Settlement Housing Fund is equally committed to bringing amenities, programs and services to communities through the development and operation of affordable housing. Settlement Housing Fund is also the parent organization of New Settlement, in the Bronx, which was created in 1989 with the acquisition of 14 abandoned buildings. New Settlement has evolved into a robust social service organization offering a range of community-based services in education, college access, youth development, arts, workforce development, community organizing, wellness and other key services that provide important resources to the neighborhood's youth and families. New Settlement's success has been achieved through close collaboration with a wide range of educational institutions, housing and community development organizations, businesses, youth development and social service agencies - in the neighborhood, Bronx-wide, across New York and nationally. The programs at New Settlement are supported by local, state and federal government agencies, as well as foundations, corporations, organizations and individuals.
