The Creative Center Merges with University Settlement

University Settlement announces a merger. A small non-profit, The Creative Center is now part of one of our neighborhood’s largest social service organizations.  The Creative Center brings the arts to seniors and people with chronic diseases.

According to a news release, “The Creative Center at University Settlement… will continue to provide all of its current arts-in-healthcare programming…  In addition, (it) will become integrated throughout University Settlement’s senior programming.”

Robin Glazer, the organization’s executive director said:  “The Creative Center came at this merger from a position of strength and collaboration, and recognizing that even excellent, small and ‘scrappy’ non-profits are at risk in the current environment… We wanted to ensure that all our excellent work will continue, and University Settlement offers us a strong institutional home and a wonderful opportunity to expand…”

Michael Zisser, University Settlement executive director added: “We are thrilled to welcome this high-quality program into the University Settlement family, bringing additional skills, services and reach to our wide range of programs… The Creative Center board and Director Robin Glazer have been excellent partners and we look forward to many new and exciting developments together.”
