The Dale Jones Burch Neighborhood Center is where Lower East Side Community members come to get all the help they need to access critical benefits and services that keep them nourished, housed, healthy, and able to lead stable lives. Our services include screening and helping people apply for health insurance, food stamps, and public housing. We connect our neighbors to legal and financial help to ensure that in hard times they can avoid evictions and financial jeopardy. Our Parent Center, housed in the neighborhood center, provides parents and other guardians a holistic life-balance approach to navigating the challenges and celebrating the joys of nurturing children in our society.
From October 31 to November 19, the neighborhood center will host an exhibition by the artist Kate Capshaw that features two portraits of individuals close to the Settlement and its programs, in addition to portraits from Capshaw’s Unaccompanied series about unhoused youth.
