About Us

Grand St. Settlement is a multi-service agency dedicated to providing essential programs for members of all ages in our communities. Programs include free or low-cost early childhood and day care services, enriching after-school programs, and support for adults and senior citizens.

Grand St. Settlement provides residents of the Lower East Side and Bushwick, Brooklyn communities with the tools and support they need to overcome challenging circumstances and build productive lives and futures. Our comprehensive and integrated array of culturally relevant programs and services assist more than 10,000 area residents of all ages annually.

Serving a Community

Throughout our nearly 100 years of service, Grand St. Settlement has redefined our programs to respond to current community needs and to the ever-changing ethnic and racial makeup of its residents. Active participant involvement and leadership help inform program development and design. The Settlement’s programs are run by an experienced, dedicated staff of more than 200 professionals who are intimately familiar with our communities' needs and resources. Scores of volunteers, including parents of program participants, are an integral element of program activities, serving as mentors, tutors, counselors, and classroom assistants.

Grand St. Settlement is a member of the United Neighborhood Houses.
