The Greater Sacramento Urban League (GSUL) seeks to be a catalyst for social and economic empowerment for Black and other historically marginalized people, youth and families so they can live in healthy, safe and thriving communities. Our work is driven by a five pillar empowerment agenda, which includes:
- Civic Engagement and Leadership Development
- Civil Rights and Racial Justice
- Economic Empowerment
- Education and Youth
- Health and Quality of Life
These pillars guide the programs and services GSUL offers. To get assistance in any of these areas, visit our program pages with more information.
GSUL advocates for political and social change that advances Black and other marginalized populations and creates a level playing field for historically underserved individuals. Our staff works with elected officials at the local, state and federal levels on legislation and policies impacting communities in the Greater Sacramento region.
We are focused on providing individuals and businesses with the tools and resources they need to not only be financially independent, but to build generational wealth. GSUL provides ongoing financial education opportunities to teach people how to become economically self-reliant.
Our Workforce Development Team connects youth and adults seeking employment with employers looking to fill part-time, full-time and seasonal positions. GSUL’s goal is to provide opportunities for Black and other under-served populations to gain meaningful employment for career advancement.
The Health and Quality of Life Team seeks to build healthy and safe communities, while working to eliminate health disparities through prevention, healthy eating and cooking, and fitness. We want to ensure all Sacramento residents have complete and full access to affordable healthcare to live long, happy and healthy lives.
The Housing Counseling Center provides HUD-approved programs, services and counseling offered to the general public at no cost. GSUL is here to assist you with your housing needs, whether that be in preparing for homeownership, maintaining your current housing, or planning for the future.
Youth & Families
GSUL works to empower youth and families to become healthier, happier, more fulfilled and productive versions of themselves. We offer a myriad of services to support youth ages 12-25 and families of all sizes and backgrounds.
