A greater Chattanooga is a place that benefits us all. And that's what we're working toward every day at the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga, creating a place where African Americans and other disadvantaged persons are able to secure economic self reliance, parity, power, and civil rights—where people from all walks of life can live happy, healthy and successful lives. Through programs that address community issues from education and employment to finance and healthy living—and with your help—we can make Chattanooga a greater place not only for today, but for future generations.
Imagine for a moment a community where kids who were formerly written off as "too hard to teach" and "not capable of learning" were suddenly being exposed to committed and accountable teachers and conquering coursework far in excess of their respective grade levels and scoring at optimal levels on national exams.
Imagine for a moment these same kids expressing themselves with "please" and "thank you" and "please excuse me" and "may I help you please" and "I don't do drugs".
Imagine for a moment men and women who were formerly dependent on public assistance now being equipped with 21st century job skills and enjoying the pride of homeownership, economic self-sufficiency and a much higher quality of life for themselves and their children.
Imagine for a moment estranged fathers taking ownership of their kids and helping to raise the bar of expectation for their family as a unit.
Imagine for a moment a community where racial, cultural, and religious differences are celebrated instead of frowned upon. Where differences serve to unite us instead of divide us. Where nobody even remotely implies that the architect of the universe made a mistake, when He made us different.
Imagine for a moment that community is Chattanooga.
It is possible with your support. Working to change lives every day, thousands of people have been educated, empowered, connected and have gotten healthier through the work of the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga. I invite you to become a part of the movement—you can help us build an empowered community we can all be proud of.
