OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Urban League of Greater Cleveland is dedicated to providing equal opportunities for African-Americans and other minorities to develop and exercise their potential on par with all other Americans through education, research, advocacy and provision of services.

OUR HISTORY

 

The Urban League of Greater Cleveland (ULGC), a community based nonprofit organization was established in 1917, in response to the needs of families migrating from the South to urban cities in the North. Leveraging its assets as advocate and service provider, the ULGC helped to mitigate the issues of housing discrimination, limited access to employment, quality education, and poor landlord tenant relations. In its 99-year history, the ULGC has delivered upon this mission to enable African Americans and other minority members to develop and exercise their potential on par with all other Americans through education, research, advocacy and provision of services. Partnering with government, corporate, and community organizations has enabled ULGC’s ability to respond effectively to the needs of those on the economic and social margins.

 

Throughout the past 100 years, whatever obstacles that confronted African Americans and their ability to gain parity with the majority community, the Urban League has been there to open doors of access, to provide education, and to advocate for opportunities. From housing and job discrimination to school desegregation and voter registration, the Urban League has been there. From basic skills training and job skill development to business and economic development, the Urban League has been there.
