About the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle

Empowering Communities. Changing Lives.

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle responds to the growing economic needs of those we serve by providing support, services, training opportunities, and programming through our five pillars of focus: 

  • Education
  • Workforce Development
  • Housing
  • Advocacy
  • Health

As the second-oldest civil rights organization in the state of Washington, ULMS is one of the region's essential economic responders, helping families overcome barriers preventing them from reaching self-sufficiency in all aspects of life. 

ULMS also serves as  a liaison between community members, local businesses, city and county government, and other service based organizations that share our concern for the welfare of the Black community and other disadvantaged residents in the Greater Puget Sound area.
