Grace Hill merges with the
Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis

On July 1, 2020 Grace Hill officially merged with the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.  The merger of Grace Hill and the Urban League provides the foundation for an organization that will expand quality services and create a model of revitalization within the St. Louis Community. Grace Hill has been a leader in the St. Louis community in the areas of development, education and family well-being for over 117 years. The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis is the #1 Ranked 5-Star Urban League affiliate in the United States, with over 50 social service programs administered to 100,000 underserved clients per year. We believe that this merger will strengthen the legacy of service established by the Grace Hill Settlement House and empower Urban League clients by providing a more diverse programs portfolio that provides “ladders out of poverty” to the low-income community in the areas of economic opportunity, educational excellence and community empowerment and civil rights & advocacy.
