Established in 1945, the Greater Phoenix Urban League, Inc. is one of the 90 affiliates of the National Urban League. GPUL supports minority families and underserved populations by providing connections to employment, housing, job training, health care, and education. Since our founding, we have served more than 100,000 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 help disenfranchised and underserved groups to meet their immediate basic needs such as job placements and access to health care. The role of the Greater Phoenix Urban League is to provide these communities with the tools to empower themselves, providing opportunities to those caught in the cycle of poverty to change their lives.


What We Do

The Mission of the 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.

Our focus is investing in five foundation areas so we can create a better Arizona for all:

  • ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT:  Every person as access to jobs with a living wage and good benefits
  • HOUSING: Every person lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy-efficient housing on fair terms
  • EDUCATION: Every child is ready for kindergarten, college, work and life
  • CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: Every person has a right to equity and justice
  • HEALTH & WELLNESS: Every person has access to quality and affordable healthcase solutions
