Empowering communities and changing lives.

Since 1945, the Urban League of Portland has worked toward the same goal: empowering Black communities and creating success stories across Oregon and SW Washington.

Focus areas include housing, health, employment, and education, all with an emphasis on culturally specific programming. The Urban League of Portland takes a holistic view, offering wraparound services for youth, adults and seniors.

The organization has had a significant impact over its 77 years of operation. In 2022 alone, more than 10,000 individuals and families benefited from ULP programming, which includes:

  • Advocacy and engagement; standing up for social justice through informing, organizing and engaging Black communities to achieve equity inside and outside work
  • Community health; creating healthier neighborhoods with education, help navigating insurance, and the creation of a robust network of trusted providers
  • Education; ensuring youth have a bright future through workforce readiness, career options, higher education and digital literacy
  • Housing assistance; connecting vulnerable community members to stable housing options
  • Senior services; helping elders remain safe and active, with access to vital resources
  • Workforce development; promoting mentorship, job preparation and professional growth while underscoring an increase in workplace diversity

Advocacy in action.

The Urban League of Portland makes a difference in people’s lives by providing wraparound services that impact different areas of life. One of these success stories is Sharay, who found herself living in her car after losing her job due to health issues, while her son stayed with other family members.

Sharay knew about Urban League of Portland’s history of uplifting the Black community, so she turned to the organization for help. They found Sharay housing, which gave her a safe place where she could take steps to piece her life back together. She then found steady work, took parenting classes, and secured stable housing for herself and her son. With ULP’s support, Sharay has even been able to explore her love of music.

“The Urban League helped me out of homelessness… Now I have opportunities opening for me,” said Sharay. “The Urban League has given me so much hope because of how far I’ve come and all the things I have overcome.”
