A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Our sustained success is based on visionary leadership, thoughtful and continuously innovative program development, cost-effective service delivery, and strategic programming partnerships. Year after year, our supporters, partners and volunteers reaffirm their commitment to Northwestern Settlement. In the nearly 125 years since our founding, we have had a remarkably stable board of directors, only three executive leaders, and an incredibly dedicated and supportive network of auxiliary boards.

Opening doors to opportunity is the central

INVESTING IN

YOUTH Each year, the Settlement prepares 78 children for Kindergarten through our preschool. Our site is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and has a Gold Circle of Quality from ExceleRate Illinois. A majority of preschool students go on to attend Rowe Elementary charter school. Rowe served nearly 700 scholars in grades K-7 during the

HOUSE IN THE WOOD

SUPPORTING OUR

FAMILIES The Settlement provides community families with immediate assistance for short term needs, as well as inspiration for the future. Our Emergency Services Program operates a year-round food pantry, with more weekly hours of operation than any other in our neighborhood. We help 2,500 families by distributing over 400,000 pounds of food, 12,000 pounds of clothing, as well as toiletries, baby needs, and household furnishings.

FOOD PANTRY EMERGENCY SERVICES PROGRAM

House In The Wood is the Settlement’s camp in Delavan, WI, providing over 400 Chicago youth with a safe summer camp experience far removed from urban violence. Hundreds of Rowe scholars attend camp each spring and fall for hands-on environmental education lessons, directly tied to in-class science programming.


HOUSE IN THE WOOD CAMPERS: 100% of campers are from low-income/inner-city backgrounds. 94% gained an increased interest in exploration. 88% gained an increased affinity for nature. 85% gained increased teamwork skills over the summer. 84% gained increased responsibility skills.

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF

MR. JOHN WELKE Northwestern Settlement remembers Mr. John Welke, who passed away on February 6, 2015. John was the longestserving Settlement staff member where he ran the woodshop program for over 50 years – a lifetime in service to his community. He lived his entire life in the house across the alley from the Settlement House.

left: Northwestern Settlement was honored to receive a visit from Wendy Spencer (3rd from left), CEO of AmeriCorps’ parent body, the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Prior to joining the Settlement, John was a carpenter who worked on the Pullman Cars, when trains still had beautiful wood interiors. He made a real difference in the lives of thousands of children over the years, teaching them carpentry skills, but even more importantly offering guidance. He was a father figure, a big brother, and a mentor to children and young adults in our community. His memory will live on through the many lives he touched.
