A Summer of Recovery: Henry Street Settlement 2021 Newsletter
By Henry Street Settlement
Henry Street Settlement’s mission is to open doors of opportunity.
But opportunity isn’t a one-time event. It’s a process, and often a multi-step one.
At the Settlement, we work hard to stay close to the members of our community who are in the greatest need of a chance to succeed—seniors, homeless families, low-income workers, those with mental illness, and over the past year, children learning at home without the right resources. We work with all kinds of people seeking opportunity, helping them overcome myriad challenges and obstacles. As unimaginable, indescribable, and unthinkable as these times have been, Henry Street has had the advantage of a blueprint left by our trailblazing founder, Lillian Wald: In times of need, act.
Leaning in to the strength and compassion of our team, the timelessness of our mission, and our deep commitment to the people we serve, Henry Street built a summer of resiliency on the Lower East Side. As you’ll read here, that determination led to a season of breaking isolation while promoting the safety and wellness of our staff and community.
