About Us

Goddard Riverside invests in people and strengthens community through 26 programs that serve some 22,000 people each year. Our roots date back to the settlement house movement of the late 1800s, and we continue to be an active member of the settlement house community at the local, national and international level. As we grow and evolve to meet the needs of the community, we continually strive to partner with the people we serve and treat everyone we encounter with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Our programs support families at every stage of life. We work within a social justice framework to create a fair and just society where all people have the opportunity to make choices that lead to better lives for themselves and their families.
