House In The Wood

A Northwestern Settlement Program

House In The Wood is a program of Northwestern Settlment, which was founded in 1891 amid the settlement house movement in Chicago and other major cities. The concept was simple but innovative and powerful. Those of means would settle in impoverished neighborhoods, often comprised of immigrant, minority and other disadvantaged populations. These social reformists would then set about the much needed work of empowering and inspiring the neighbors around them.

Northwestern Settlement is one of few remaining settlement houses in the country, and is the oldest continually operating settlement house in Chicago. The Settlement offers a wide variety of programs and services for young and old including educational opportunities, emergency services, live theater, family events and, of course, outdoor programs at House In The Wood.
