LINCOLN SQUARE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER
The vision that shaped Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center in 1949 also shaped the Settlement House movement begun over 100 years ago. Throughout this city, neighbors stood up and took responsibility for each other, working cooperatively to build networks or services to support and empower all who lived there. The result was a groundswell of neighborhoods where people could live safely, nurture their children, and participate in their own success. With an eye on this vision, we at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center have for over 57 years pursued our Mission of meeting the social, educational, recreational and cultural needs of the people of the West Side, particularly the residents of the Amsterdam Houses and the Addition which comprises 14 buildings spanning from 61st to 65th Streets and Amsterdam to West End Avenues. We accomplish this by meeting the emerging needs of our neighborhood by delivering programs and services to the over 2,700 individuals and 1,250 families-from pre-schoolers to seniors-who live and work in this community.
