Settlement Housing Fund

About Us

Founded in 1969, Settlement Housing Fund has developed 57 projects with over 8,700 apartments. Our mission is to create and sustain high quality affordable housing and programs, building strong and economically diverse neighborhoods throughout New York City. Settlement Housing Fund works closely with community partners to provide low- and moderate-income New Yorkers with pathways to long-term affordable housing, education, employment and wellness. The organization currently owns 29 buildings with 1,676 apartments in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan. Last summer SHF broke ground on its 18th affordable housing development in the Bronx. In addition, SHF operates facilities and programs including a new pre-kindergarten through grade 12 public school with a community center, swimming facility, dance studio, green learning roof terrace and more in the Bronx. In Brooklyn SHF runs a NYC Department of Education alternative school and US Department of Labor funded YouthBuild program, which provides education, construction job training, college access and employment placement to young people ages 16-24 who have been out of school and work. Settlement Housing Fund also consults on tenant selection.
