Lutheran Settlement House:
Established in 1902, the Lutheran Settlement House is a community-based, non-profit organization committed to serving vulnerable children, adults, and families. LSH provides direct services to thousands of Philadelphians each year through programming designed to enhance the ability of the participants to be self-sufficient, and to live independently and with dignity. By providing and connecting people with critical social services, LSH serves as a safety net for some of the most vulnerable members of the community, and as a resource for those who seek to change the direction of their lives by developing skills which will enable them to become self-sufficient.
