Ken Jockers

In conversation with Leader Anne Klaeysen, Ken speaks about the modern settlement house movement in New York City and its role in supporting and assisting vulnerable populations in our city. In the current political and cultural environment, settlement houses continue to provide bedrock services to people in need while simultaneously innovating to assist new immigrant populations, overcome systemic educational challenges and address intensifying problems with housing and employment. Specifically, Ken describes the programming and impact of Hudson Guild, which serves Chelsea and the west side of Manhattan and which has a long and important history with the Ethical Culture movement.
