Our COVID-19 Response & Services


The Urban League has been there to serve when our community is at its lowest! It has never mattered what the crisis was, the systematic oppression remains constant for those most vulnerable. Today, in the midst of this uncertainty will be no different.

Effective immediately and until further notice, the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle will be temporarily adjusting our hours of operation and available services to ensure that we abide by our Governor, Mayor, and Public Health recommendations of social distancing. 

If you are in need of assistance for ULMS services, we recommend that you call (206) 461-3792 to make an appointment and press 0 to speak with the receptionist. Walk-in hours will be from 10AM-3PM Monday through Friday.

We will gladly work with you via phone as best as we can if you are exhibiting any signs of illness to assist you with information to save your home, find you a place to sleep, provide groceries for your family, or connect to job opportunities. Please click the buttons below for a list of services we are providing, as well as resources and information we’ve collected for the Seattle/King County areaa.

Our Commitment to Those We Serve

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

Education is the cornerstone of success. It is through education that we can develop a sense of empowerment. ULMS is committed to providing both youth and adult education, training, and certification opportunities on a year-round basis. For more information on ULMS education programs, please visit the “Education” tab in the menu above.

In the United States, people of color and low-income Americans are more likely than their white and affluent counterparts to be uninsured and face barriers to care. They are also less likely to have a primary care provider and have higher rates of chronic conditions (i.e. heart disease, diabetes cancer, asthma, and HIV).

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle supports the delivery of replicable, sustainable health care to underserved communities while advocating for the elimination of health disparities.

Housing is a basic and essential need. Whether you are renting or buying, a home should not be an insurmountable obstacle. The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle is currently a HUD certified housing program that offers numerous related workshops and courses. For more information on ULMS Housing services, please visit the “Housing” tab in the menu above.

People need access to jobs and the financial resources required to maintain economic stability. More importantly, they need the requisite skills to be competitive in today’s job market. ULMS’s prepares men, woman, and youth with barriers to employment to be successful contributors in the workplace and society. For more information on ULMS talent development programs, please visit the “Workforce” tab in the menu above.

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle works diligently to protect the civil liberties and rights of the black community, advocate for policy reform, serve as a voice for those we serve, and educate the public on civil issues affecting our region of service.
