Community. Compassion. Change.

Food Access

Anyone who needs food can receive a variety of dry goods, meat and dairy, and fresh produce from our pantry. For many of our clients, this food assistance allows them to focus on their health and healing while they plan for their futures.

Homeless Services

Philadelphia’s housing crisis forces many families into homelessness, and Lutheran Settlement House provides supports to help families navigate the crisis and to find the stability and dignity they deserve.

Domestic Violence Services

The Bilingual Domestic Violence Program (BDVP) provides free counseling services for victims and survivors of domestic and dating abuse regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Older Adults

The Center at Lutheran Settlement House is a place to grow. A place to be inspired and explore. A place to be cared for and to care for others. For adults 55 and over, we offer a range of programming for right now and for what’s next.


By integrating education into all of our services, we help people to grow and reach their incredible potential.
