Abstract

Founded by social reformers who chose to live where they worked—among the poor—settlements have survived for nearly a century. The author traces their colorful history through the New Deal and the civil rights movement, describes their loss of identity in the complex of present-day social services, and speculates on their role in the service networks of the future.
