Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Henry Street Settlement offers temporary emergency housing for homeless families (Urban Family Center and Helen’s House), homeless women (Third Street Women’s Residence), and homeless female survivors of domestic violence and their children (Domestic Violence Survivors Shelter). The Settlement also operates a permanent supportive housing residence (Third Street Supportive Housing) with units available to chronically homeless men and women who meet the NY/NY II criteria.
Each shelter has a seamlessly integrated, comprehensive on-site social service program that helps residents restore and rebuild their lives while managing their housing crises. The program’s services include case management, and employment and housing search assistance.
With the exception of our Domestic Violence Survivors Shelter, all residents are referred to our shelters from the New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS). To contact DHS directly, please visit the agency’s website or call the number in the contact box at right.
