Henderson Settlement has many needs throughout the year. It would take pages to list all the things we use across all the different departments. If you would like to support a specific area, you may designate financial gifts to that department. We will make sure your gift helps fund that area. If you would like to fund more specific items, consider the list below. Be aware that we are able to purchase items tax exempt and may be able to find a better price than the retail market.
