We are planning a phase-in reopening that allows us to follow the City’s regulations for reopening our senior centers. We are currently planning exciting outdoor programming, and seniors are now able to make appointments for assistance on-site to help with issues which we cannot assist with remotely. For more information, contact your Center Director.
Estamos planeando una reapertura gradual que nos permita seguir las regulaciones de la Ciudad para reabrir nuestros centros para personas mayores.

Para más información comuníquese con el Director de su Centro.
WHAT WE DO
Union Settlement has been providing essential services to East Harlem seniors for over a century, and our Meals on Wheels program has served homebound seniors for over 40 years. Our senior population of over 1,400 seniors relies heavily on Union Settlement to help meet their everyday needs. We offer healthy aging programs at our four senior centers, NORC and assistance to the homebound elderly. We connect seniors with transportation, counseling, nutritious meals and volunteer opportunities.
