In 1902, Lutheran Settlement House (LSH) was founded as the “Lutheran Social Mission Society of Philadelphia.” Since its inception, it has served vulnerable children, adults, and families living in inner city Philadelphia, regardless of race or creed. Lutheran Settlement House’s current programming integrates social, educational and advocacy services through the provision of a Bilingual Domestic Violence Program, as well as other programs. The Ground-breaking Bilingual Domestic Violence Program was the first domestic violence program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide services in two languages: English and Spanish. In addition, LSH’s BDVP was a founding member of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV).
