What We Do
With a 26 percent poverty rate, Philadelphia has long been the poorest metropolitan area of the country’s biggest cities.
Here’s what we’re doing to change that.
Training, development, and job placement for career seekers.
Our Workforce Development department provides career seekers a path to employment through training and development.
Creating pathways to prosperity through homeownership.
Our Housing department helps families build equity and stability with its First-Time Homebuyer Program, laying a solid foundation for intergenerational wealth. Housing counselors assist with foreclosures and defaults, and provide help with financial literacy and utilities.
Youth & Education
We inspire the next generation of leaders.
Education is the foundation for empowerment. Our programs inspire leadership, economic success, and independence while preparing students for college and career.
We grow the next big thing.
Our Entrepreneurship Center offers workshops and events designed to drive job creation and encourage innovation.
Health & Wellness
We advocate for access to quality healthcare.
The Urban League of Philadelphia’s Health and Wellness program is designed to educate and empower our communities to adopt healthy lifestyles.
