After years of financial difficulty, the Baltimore Urban League has a plan to get back on track. The league has revamped its leadership, reduced its $1.6 million debt by about half and has improved recordkeeping. Officials are raising money, paying back loans and catching up on delinquent audits. Although the nonprofit organization remains about $800,000 in debt, leaders are optimistic that it soon will regain its reputation as an effective benefactor of the poor. "We lost our wheels, and now need to put them back on," said Marlene C. McLaurin, a United Way official who has been interim chief operating officer since September.
