University Settlement, Inc.
April 18, 2011
As an educational consultant who works with non-profits around the Cleveland area, I have been consistently impressed with Unviersity Settlement for several reasons: 1) They truly embody a community-based organization that meets felt needs of the neighborhood with well defined programs that deliver what they promise, like their afterschool tutoring program. 2) They understand the importance and commitment of collaborating with other types of organizations to make sure their clients needs are fully met, like their partnership with Applewood Centers. 3) They have strong management and organizational structure to administer a variety of programs with complex funding streams.
