Our Mission

The mission of Greater Phoenix Urban League is to be an agent of change; to support minorities and those in need in achieving economic and social equality through programs in economic empowerment, housing, education, civic engagement, and health and wellness.


We work toward this vision through programs and initiatives in these areas:

About the Greater Phoenix Urban League

Established in 1945, the Greater Phoenix Urban League, Inc is a civil rights, social service, private, 501c3 organization. The Greater Phoenix Urban League supports minority families and underserved populations by providing connections to employment, housing, health care, education, civic engagement and advocacy.

Since our founding, we have served hundreds of thousands of individuals and continue to develop and expand our programs as we further the Urban League Movement in the greater Phoenix area, changing lives, and empowering communities.

Today, vast disparities continue to exist in the United States leaving generation after generation facing a cycle of poverty with deficient educational standards, unacceptably high unemployment, limited access to quality healthcare, and deplorable housing conditions.

At the Greater Phoenix Urban League we assist disenfranchised and underserved groups to meet their basic needs such as employment, education and access to health care.
