About Us


New Settlement is a community-led, mission driven Settlement House. For more than 30 years we have worked together to build the resilience and aspirations of the youth and families of the Southwest Bronx by delivering award-winning programs in after-school education, workforce development, college readiness, health and fitness, and member-driven community organizing for better housing and safer schools. 


Rooted in the Bronx, we stand with community members to break systemic barriers, advance justice, promote leadership and strengthen neighborhoods. By ensuring agency around education, employment, housing, wellness and creative expression, we help cultivate an equitable society where individuals and families have the power to use their voice to create the change they wish to see.


For more than 30 years, our success in neighborhood revitalization and community building has been achieved through close collaboration with community members, educational institutions, housing and community development organizations, businesses, and youth development and social service agencies in the Mount Eden neighborhood and Bronx-wide.
