Jane Addams Hull House Association

Hull House was founded by Jane Addams in 1889 on Chicago's West Side and became premiere institution of service, advocacy and philanthropy for the city's poor and under-served. This Halsted Street settlement house set the standard for working with poor, marginalized communities of people, and systemically correcting social injustice. Addams went on to become the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for her work at Hull House. Hull House continues this legacy today as one of Chicago's oldest and largest social and human service agencies offering a continuum of services from infant/toddler to senior care that helps families, individuals and communities become stronger, healthier, safer, and more self-sufficient.
