The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle. Welcome to the Movement!

For 82 years the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle has created a more equitable Seattle by providing children, people with criminal histories and low-income people of color resources and opportunities to advance in education, housing, employment and health.

Bring it all back home. Stay informed.

U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) certified, the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle provides an array of trainings and resources surrounding home ownership and financial literacy. We offer trained mediators, foreclosure assistance and information on reverse mortgages.

Education is the cornerstone of success.

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle maintains a steadfast focus on closing the educational achievement gap in Seattle. Computer labs, literature and University partnerships were some of the notable educational resources in place. Empowering our children to succeed through education is the cornerstone of building a healthy community. Help us bring the educational program back!

Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Historically, the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle has maintained an unprecedented impact on Seattle by providing community members basic job readiness skills necessary to obtain and maintain employment. Many have suffered and are still suffering through this economic asphyxiation. There can be no better time than now to act and serve the Seattle community with a strong, dependable, top-tier employment program. With your help, we look forward to reviving our Employment program!

Empowering Communities. Changing Lives.
