Hamilton-Madison House is a voluntary, non-profit settlement house dedicated to improving the quality of life of its community, primarily those in the Two Bridges/Chinatown area of Manhattan's Lower East Side. The neighborhood is a federally designated poverty area, with a constantly changing mixture of ethnic groups, and lack of adequate services and resources. Since its establishment in 1898, Hamilton-Madison House has been a part of the settlement house movement in New York City that has pioneered the development and protection of humane policies and programs. These efforts have fostered social well-being among our most vulnerable populations: children, the elderly, the ill, handicapped, new immigrants, refugees and the unemployed. Our unique professional experience in working with Asian Americans has led to the expansion of services citywide.
