“Solutions Benefit” Celebrates the Work of

East Harlem’s Oldest and Largest Social Services Provider



New York City – [April 30, 2012] – Union Settlement Association, East Harlem’s oldest and largest social service provider, announced is honoring Dr. Herbert Pardes, Executive Vice-Chair, Board of Trustees, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Maxine L. Rockoff, Ph.D., Chair, Board of Directors,

Union Settlement Association, at its annual Solutions Benefit. The event is being held in the Manhattan Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt (42nd Street and Lexington Avenue), with a reception beginning at 6:30PM followed by dinner and program at 7:30PM.

Hosted by Emmy-award winning reporter Andrew Siff of WNBC 4 and featuring a presentation by U.S. Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY), the evening will bring together hundreds of New Yorkers to support Union Settlement’s mission to create opportunities that help East Harlem residents change their lives for the better.  The Solutions Benefit recognizes the important roles that Dr. Pardes and Dr. Rockoff play in advancing community-based solutions in East Harlem. In addition to Rep. Rangel, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer will also be in attendance.

“Community-based solutions are at the core of our mission to create opportunities in East Harlem, and we are delighted to recognize the achievements of two individuals who have worked tirelessly to advocate local-minded answers in one of New York’s most underserved neighborhoods,” said David Nocenti, Executive Director of Union Settlement.  “Both Dr. Pardes and Dr. Rockoff are distinguished by their commitment to finding real solutions that draw from our communities’ strengths to make the City of New York a healthier place, from our hospitals to our schools to our local economy.”


Creating Solutions for the East Harlem Community for over 115 Years


With a rich history as one of the great cultural bastions of New York City, East Harlem is one of the most unique neighborhoods in Manhattan – but it is also one of the very poorest communities in the nation, where 42% of families struggle to survive on less than $25,000 a year.  With a 117-year tradition of service to this neighborhood, every year Union Settlement helps more than 13,000 people build better lives for themselves and their families through programs in education, childcare, nutrition, senior services, youth programs, counseling, the arts, job training, and economic development.  These community-based programs create an extensive support system that offers real solutions to generations of East Harlem residents.

The gala will raise awareness about the issues facing East Harlem and inspire attendees to be part of the solution.


  • Fact: Unemployment in East Harlem is more than 13%, which is 40% higher than the rate in Manhattan.
  • Our Solution: Union Settlement assists over 1,000 job seekers each year through workforce readiness, job training and job placement programs.
  • Fact: 58% of East Harlem’s residents over the age of 25 never attended college.
  • Our Solution: Each year Union Settlement helps 400 young people get into college, most of them the first in their families to do so.
  • Fact: East Harlem youth have the fourth highest rate of juvenile justice involvement in New York State.
  • Our Solution: Our work with the youth of East Harlem prevents gang involvement and criminal activity, and provides the support these young people need to succeed in school and make positive choices in their daily lives.


Honoring Leaders Who Create Solutions


Union Settlement honors Herbert Pardes, M.D. for his leadership in the fields of public health, medical education and mental health.  He has made East Harlem and other underserved neighborhoods healthier places to live and work.

In honoring Maxine L. Rockoff, Ph.D., Union Settlement expresses its appreciation of her long commitment to the settlement house movement, to bringing digital resources to underserved communities and to strengthening Union Settlement Association.  It also thanks her for her 27 years of service and leadership on our Board of Directors.

The support of Union Settlement’s benefactors enables the organization to affect real change. Union Settlement gratefully acknowledges the support of its Gold Sponsors: Banco Popular, Empire BlueCross BlueShield, Jennifer & Eli Gross, Ruth E. Pachman & Donald T. Fallati, Maxine L. Rockoff & Wesley A. Clark and the many others who have contributed to the 2012 Solutions Benefit.
