City Stories Annual Gala: A Place to Grow


Join us on May 3 for our annual gala, City Stories: A Place to Grow!

Everyone should have a place to grow – a safe community where we can create ourselves. Founded in 1886 as the first Settlement House in the United States, University Settlement creates a place to grow for 40,000 of our neighbors in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side every year.
