Community Empowerment

Empowering Families Through Impactful Programs that Change Lives


The Urban League provides those needs that stabilize families so that empowered clients may focus on bettering themselves and their communities.  The basic needs of food, clothing and shelter must first be met and available for clients and their families so they can then strive for their economic self sufficiency.

  • Clothing Assistance — Families receive new, clean and quality clothing of their choice from the Urban League’s Clothes Closets.
  • Food Assistance  — Food pantry operations at the Urban League provide seniors and low-income families with food baskets.
  • Holiday Toy Giveaway — Over 500 families are served each year through the Urban League’s annual toy giveaway.
  • Homeless Prevention — The Urban League helps families to prevent evictions and foreclosures by providing rent or mortgage assistance.
  • Lead Remediation – The Urban League carries out lead tests and remediation necessary to ensure clients’ homes are lead safe and healthy.
