Urban League to host second annual community breakfast

The Urban League of the Pikes Peak Region will hold its second annual Salute to the Community Breakfast, 7-8:30 a.m. Sept. 26 at the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N. Cascade Ave.

At the breakfast, Urban League directors will share updates on the group's progress helping victims of domestic violence and the unemployed, and its partnerships with Goodwill, Front Range Community Service and Pikes Peak Workforce Center, among others.

The nonprofit Urban League refers individuals to organizations that can help them find employment, enroll in adult education classes and access medical, legal and other forms of assistance. The organization is currently partnering with E3 Dropout Recovery Solution.

Typical populations seeking help from the Urban League include Native Americans moving to the Springs from reservations, women of color in their 50s who've suffered recent catastrophic loss and children who are involved in the juvenile justice system.

"The irony of all of the above is that we manage to maintain our mission of helping people without a paid staff," said board member Janice Frazier.

Mark Bittle, market development manger of CenturyLink of Southeastern Colorado, a major Urban League sponsor, will present. The Rev. Dennis Mose & Friends will perform gospel selections at the beginning of the program.

The breakfast is free, but donations are encouraged during this fundraising event. -
