Urban Triage, Inc. (UT) is on a mission to empower Black families and co-conspirators while mobilizing community resources and distributing them to those most in need, and at the same time, engaging systems in implementing systematic, sustainable, equitable, and clinically sound approaches to health behavior and prevention.
UT is poised to do this through education, community support services, and advocacy, that systematically reduces and eventually works to eliminate barriers such as inadequate education, lack of access to resources, and class and health disparities. Our goal is to promote positive health outcomes and reduce significant health disparities at the community level, through first meeting basic needs, and then engaging communities through educational opportunities and effective advocacy at multiple levels.
UT stands in the gap for those most in need through advocacy and critical coordinated services between partner organizations, city officials, and community resources. Most critically, we do so with the community trust and track record to carry out the work.
