Union Settlement was a great place to work at. I began as a family worker, which was an entry level job and through the years I was Promoted to Director, due to my education. This organization supported me when I was in school and allowed me flexible time to take classes when needed. It was also a fun place working with children, families and staff. yes it was important to have the numbers up, but that was all part of the day's work. I gained so much experience working along side my colleagues who were always eager to share their knowledge of the workplace. The staff was there in times of sorrow and illness, with an encouraging word, flowers, help if I needed it. This was not just for me but for all of the staff that was employed at Union Settlement. There were some rough patches when the economy took a turn downward and some people had to be let go, but that happened throughout the country. I enjoyed my time with Union Settlement and will be forever grateful for the opportunity that was given to me.
They care about the community of East Harlem.
Not enough funds to do everything they would like to do.
