GET STARTED NOW
Imagine a world with no equality gaps.
For more than a century, that’s been the vision of the National Urban League. Since 1910, the league and its affiliates have worked to remove barriers that keep Black Americans and all underserved people from enjoying true equality.
Quad County Urban League was founded in 1975 to address local needs in Dupage, Kane, Kendall and Will counties in Illinois. For almost 50 years, we’ve been investing in these communities. Residents know us. Residents trust us. And we know and trust them, too.
A PERSONAL FOCUS
QCUL programs are practical and personal; the point is to arm individuals with new skills, new resources or new opportunities. Because when your life changes, you empower your community too.
A HOLISTIC VISION
QCUL has a lot of programs – but our work with clients is based on their personal goals, not on our offerings. Your case manager will listen to what you need, then point you to solutions – wherever they are.
A HISTORY OF JUSTICE WORK
The National Urban League worked for Black employment in the 1920s, helped plan the March on Washington in the 1960s and was involved in the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence in the 1980s. We’re an important part of the American story. And so are you.
