About the Greater Phoenix Urban League
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.
