The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh focuses on serving African-Americans and other minorities, but no one is ever turned away, helping more than 20,000 individuals in Pittsburgh and the surrounding counties last year alone. As the largest comprehensive social service/civil rights organization in Southwestern Pennsylvania, the  Pittsburgh Urban League helps others to help themselves through extra-curricular educational opportunities, health advocacy, housing counseling,  parental education and support for early childhood and youth development, hunger prevention services, sustainable wage career preparation, and other programs that lead to improved ability to achieve economic empowerment and self-reliance. Ninety-nine years of service to the African American community in our region has earned the Urban League the community’s trust. The Urban League’s voice has gained a reputation for untarnished credibility which we strive to use strategically in order to reduce structural barriers and improve access to opportunities for those we serve.
