Our Vision

Founded in 1993 by John H. Gregory, The National Center for Urban Solutions (NCUS) has served the urban community for over 20 years moving individuals mired in the negative impacts of urban poverty to socioeconomic self-sufficiency. Driven by our NCUS model, we have built a national reputation through our “Out of the Box” grassroots philosophy. NCUS award winning programs have been recognized locally by the City of Columbus, Nationally by the White House under former Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, and by The Department of Labor and HUD as Best Practice Model.

NCUS core competencies focus on workforce development, education and health & wellness. Through our innovative result-driven programs, we have moved over 13,000 individuals off public assistance, up-skilled thousands of African American men to high demand employment and enrolled hundreds of urban youth to obtain their high school diploma. Annually, we engage over 50,000 individuals improving the health disparities affecting African American men in 12 U.S cities.

NCUS management team has over 30 years of professional experience in Human Resources, K-12 Education, Training and Development, Sales and Workforce Development. Driven by our fearless President, we believe in what we say we do!
