ULPBC Participates In On The Table Conversations

Urban League of Palm Beach County participated this week in the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties’ “On The Table” small-group, meal-time conversations.

Our group explored meaningful ideas about how to cultivate a stronger community – particularly through housing.

We talked about: How can we help more low-moderate income residences apply for home loans? And we discussed what are the contributing factors toward lack of affordable housing in Palm Beach County?

It’s the second year the Urban League of Palm Beach County participated in this civic engagement initiative, funded through Knight Foundation, which unites people of all ages and diverse backgrounds to discuss issues that impact their community.

In attendance was:

– Alexandra Boyle, Community Impact Assistant, Community Foundation
– Monique Corker, VP of Marketing, Comerica Bank and ULPBC Board Member
– Patrick Franklin, President & CEO, Urban League of PBC
– Jean Belzer Louis, Director of Housing, Urban League
– Lavern Young, Program Coordinator, Urban League
– Priscilla Rodrigues, Housing Counselor, Urban League
– Soulan Johnson, VP of Development and Marketing, Urban League
