  • A Message From the President | Urban Affairs Coalition
    to form the Greater Philadelphia Urban Affairs Coalition GPUAC And in September of 2010 we changed our name to the Urban Affairs Coalition We removed Greater Philadelphia from our name because although we will always have our roots in this region our work of building wealth creating opportunities for youth and strengthening nonprofits extends beyond Philadelphia and its five counties And we haven t missed the fact that many of you have said our new name is easier to say As the Urban Affairs Coalition we will continue to do what we have always been known for bringing people together and getting things done We will work with business communities and government to solve problems facing urban communities and our most vulnerable populations We have an engaged and active board of directors a terrific and committed staff and more than 70 program partners who are getting the hard work done on the ground each and every day I am proud to have led the Coalition for the last 16 years We have made great strides on issues facing our communities such as finding jobs for thousands of young people working with disadvantaged businesses to help them grow fighting predatory lending practices making financial education available supporting training placement and diversity in the workforce ending homelessness working with young people to end violence as well as drug and alcohol addiction preventing the spread of HIV AIDS and making school choice available and public education stronger And yet there is much more to be done We as the Urban Affairs Coalition promise to continue to drive change every day Kind regards Sharmain Matlock Turner President CEO Subscribe to our Newsletter About Us History UAC Impacts President s Corner President s Bio Interviews Speeches Board of Directors Management Staff Financials FAQ Office Location
