What is Urban Solutions?

Urban Solutions , Inc. is a non-profit corporation devoted to solving tomorrow’s problems today. Every year since 1982 scholarships have been given to young people entering college. Often, $250.00 to $1000.00 is all it takes to make it possible for a student to reach their career goal and become a productive member of the community. We fill this gap.

Additionally, Urban Solutions, Inc. collaborates with committed community groups, agencies, religious organizations and individuals to provide programs for inner city youth which help over a 1000 youth each year. We also assist community based organizations, enabling them secure resources to help strengthen their programs and activities. As you know, when we, the community, all work together, we can eliminate crime, improve the health status of our citizens, educate our children and improve our economic base. These are the goals of Urban Solutions, Inc. 


Each year students that have proven themselves academically and have demonstrated a commitment to the community, are awarded scholarships.
