The Settlement Home for Children

An Update from The Home

As our community navigates ever-changing news and circumstances, we are closely monitoring the orders and recommendations provided by our statewide and local authorities. While the guidance we are receiving from various levels of government varies, we plan to follow the most restrictive set of guidelines given to our community by continuing to operate under our current campus protocols until Monday, June 15.  At that time, we will assess our organization’s next steps. As changes develop, we will continue to keep you informed. Thank you for supporting The Settlement Home for Children!
