Our Mission is to assist African-Americans and other disadvantaged urban residents in the achievement of social and economic equality. The Urban League of Essex County implements it mission through program services, bridge building and advocacy.
What We Do
Since our founding in 1917 the League has put countless numbers of individuals and families on the path to economic opportunity, social equality and the achievement of their dreams. Each year, we help thousands of individuals and their families through quality programs in early childhood education, youth development, employment services, housing and neighborhood revitalization.
