Mission Statement

United Neighborhood Houses (UNH) promotes and strengthens the neighborhood-based multi-service approach to improving the lives of New Yorkers in need and the communities in which they live. A membership organization rooted in the history and values of the settlement house movement, UNH supports its members through policy development, advocacy and capacity building activities.

Description

Founded over 85 years ago, UNH's original mandate was to unify settlement houses' collective efforts to achieve social reform and to provide a voice for low-income residents. Today, we continue to do this work and much more. With an active membership of 36 independent community centers and settlement houses operating at more than 400 sites throughout the City, UNH and its member agencies represent one of New York City's largest human service systems. Together, this network provides vital support to children, families, working adults and seniors, helping them lead more productive and more fulfilling lives.
