More Info

Detroit is going thru a new renaissance. Neighborhoods are changing, new businesses are coming that are creating an atmosphere for all sorts new opportunities. Urban Solutions, Inc. is dedicated to helping young Detroiters to reach their education goals in an effort to pursue those opportunities.

Annual Scholarship Fundraising Campaign

For more than 30 years, Urban Solutions has helped young people get closer to their dream of higher education. With your help, we can continue making a difference. 

Pressley Green Scholarship

It all started in 1982 with The Pressley Green Scholarship, in honor of Pressley Green, a successful business leader that realized that he had to help our young people reach their goals. He did this by personally financing the education of many young people in the community.

Mr. Green was brutally murdered by several misdirected young men, lost in the wrong pursuit of life. Today, Urban Solutions, Inc., a 501 (c) (3)corporation continues this tradition with the generous help of the many, concerned community leaders, and family members. Our young people are the future and they need you.

Each year students are selected that have proven themselves academically and have demonstrated a commitment to the community. These scholarship funds are used for gap financing where a few dollars will make between attending and not attending school. We have found that only a $1000.00 to $1500.00 can make the difference. 

About Urban Solutions

Urban Inc. is a non-profit corporation devoted to solving tomorrow's problems today. Every year since 1982 scholarships been given to young college bound Detroiters. Often, $250.00 to $1000.00 is all it takes to make it possible for a student to reach their career goal and become a productive member of the community. We fill this gap. 

Additionally, Urban Solutions, Inc. collaborates with committed community groups, agencies, religious organizations and individuals to provide programs for inner city youth which help over a 1000 youth each year. We also assist organizations, enabling secure resources to help strengthen their programs and activities. As you know, when we, the community, all work together, we can eliminate crime, improve the health status of our citizens, educate our children and improve our economic base. These are the goals of Urban Solutions, Inc.

Your contribution will have a great impact. 

Thank you.
