Settlement Housing Fund will be celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Semiperm Housing, our supportive residence for single-parent families at 210 W. 102nd Street, on April 12. A tour of Semiperm at 5:30 PM will be followed by a reading and discussion with author Jonathan Franzen at the American Youth Hostel (891 Amsterdam at 103rd) at 7 PM.
Semiperm is a residential community created by Settlement Housing Fund in 2007, and the only intermediate-term housing in New York City geared to homeless single parents who are employed or in school, and motivated to gain the skills needed to live independently. Our on-site staff provides a curriculum and social services focused on meeting each family’s individual goals, and we partner with volunteers, other organizations and city agencies to provide additional assistance and referrals. When parents are ready to leave Semiperm, We help them achieve a lasting transition to permanent housing, often in one of our own buildings.
RSVP by calling CA Hutton or Nicole Clare at 212-265-6530.
