Hide Profile

The Henry Street Settlement was organized in 1893 by Lillian Wald and Mary Brewster in New York City's Lower East Side neighborhood. Miss Wald and Miss Brewster were nurses and the settlement's early work was principally a visiting nurse service. By the time the settlement was incorporated in 1903, its work had expanded to include many of the usual settlement services. Miss Wald was succeeded as headworker in 1933 by Helen Hall. In 1944, the settlement and the Visiting Nurse Service were legally separated into two organizations.
