The mission of the Greater Washington Urban League is to ensure that everyone in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is on the road to self-sufficiency through a variety of innovative programs. In doing so, it’s essential to increase the economic empowerment of Blacks and other traditionally underserved populations to share equally in the responsibilities and rewards of full citizenship. Your donation will help us support that mission.


Fighting to Stabilize our Families

#GivingTuesday is a global day designed to support our communities.  This year the Greater Washington Urban League highlighting its work in stabilizing families and communities. GWUL provides foreclosure prevention counseling as a part of its Housing Services. We work with our community members to provide hope, reduce stress, and prevent defaults on rent and mortgages. When life happens people should not have to choose between one basic need over the other. One-month reprieve can make the difference between default and perseverance. 

You can join us as we continue to #FightingforFamilies. Whatever your level of support, we will maximize every gift to support families. Donations made on December 1st to replenish the Emergency Response Fund provides those hardest hit with access to emergency housing, medical, grocery, and utility payments. 


Your support will make an impact in our community for generations to come. You are helping lead the fight to stabilize our communities!
