The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis is opening a new office in Fairview Heights.
The ribbon cutting for the new location at 10220 Lincoln Trail will be held at 1 p.m. Friday.
"Relocating to this new facility provides greater accessibility to the entire St. Clair County community with more parking and an expansion of services for our clients," said James H. Buford, president and CEO of the Urban League.
The new Urban League Metro East Community Outreach Center will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and offer rent and mortgage assistance, utility assistance, computer and work readiness training, housing counseling services, foreclosure prevention and financial literacy at the new location.
