Since 1969, the Urban League of Southern Connecticut has helped residents of Southern Connecticut improve their economic situations. 

Through its programming, the League seeks to empower individuals and families as they create brighter futures for themselves and build stronger communities.

Our strategy:

  • Ensure that our children are well educated and prepped for economic self-reliance in the 21st century,
  • Help adult attain economic self-sufficiency through stable jobs, homeownership, entrepreneurship, and wealth accumulation.
  • Strengthen our civil rights by breaking down all barriers in order to have equal participation in the economic and social mainstream.
