Lutheran Settlement House volunteers working in one of a broad array of LSH programs.

Established in 1902, Lutheran Settlement House (LSH) is a non-profit, community-based organization committed to serving children, adults, and families living in Philadelphia. Over the past century, the programs and services offered by LSH have changed in response to the evolving needs of the community. However, the core mission of Lutheran Settlement House--"to empower individuals, families, and communities to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through an integrated program of social, educational, and advocacy services"--has remained constant.

Our main programs include:

  • Bilingual Domestic Violence Program (BDVP).
  • Community Education and Employment Department (CEED).
  • Homeless Services (Jane Addams Place).
  • Senior Services (Senior Center).
  • Medical Advocacy.
  • CARES.
  • Public Awareness Campaigns and Events:
    • Men Can.
    • Women of Courage.
