The Urban League was established in 1918 to improve the lives of people in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The organization provides needs that stabilize families so people can focus on bettering themselves and their communities. They work to supply the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter, amongst others.
Rent/Mortgage Assistance: Helps families to prevent evictions and foreclosures.
Utility Assistance: Provides utility assistance, resulting in reconnection and/or the prevention of utility shut offs.
Lead Remediation: Provides lead remediation services to homes in the St. Louis area, with an emphasis on making homes with children under the age of six lead safe.
Clothing: Supplies families with new, clean and quality clothing of their choice from the Urban League’s Clothes Closets.
