Learning to speak English is a cornerstone of assimilation into life in America, and University Settlement has been at the forefront addressing this need since the early years. Today, the immigrant population served by the Settlement's Adult Literacy program is largely Chinese, reflecting the change in neighborhood demographics on the Lower East Side and throughout the city.
University Settlement treats immigrants with respect and supports their goal to succeed in many ways. Negotiating life in a new language isn't easy. But with decades of experience, University Settlement helps families find their way.

The Adult Literacy Program's office is located at 175 Eldridge Street.
