The photo above captures just a snapshot of the the MUL's annual Family Day celebration. This year more than 2,000 people enjoyed the food, fun, and festivities that went on from noon until dusk on an 80-degree day in September! More importantly hundreds of families were connected to community resources that put them on a path to a better future. We wish we could reach more people through events like Family Day.
Our own programs under our Gateway to Opportunity service delivery model help people become first-time homebuyers, enter specialized skills training, prepare for post-secondary education options, explore career pathways and access affordable healthcare. We wish we could equip more people with the training and skills needed to earn a livable wage and realize the dream of homeownership.
On a daily basis an average of 200 people come through our doors seeking service. At least a hundred more come in just to take advantage of our Computer Resource Room for housing and job searches, and to get help with resume preparation. We wish we could keep this room staffed longer to serve more people who need access to the internet.
As 2014 comes to a close we hope you will consider a year-end gift to the Minneapolis Urban League to help ensure that our programs can meet the needs of all of our constituents. We invite you to learn more about our programs by clicking the links on the Program Menu Bar above.
