Opening doors to better futures for At Risk youth
Since 1936, our community has supported the Northwestern Settlement mission to nurture, educate and inspire children in-need through social services, education and arts programs at the award-winning House In The Wood in Lake Delavan, Wisconsin.
Thanks to our friends and supporters, boys and girls from nearly 50 of Chicago's most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods discover an inspiring environment to learn, grow and just be kids during summer camp and STEM-based outdoor education sessions at House In The Wood.
The North Shore Board of Northwestern Settlement proudly volunteers our services and all proceeds from our annual fundraiser directly benefit House In The Wood campers and programs.
