FPWA serves as a critical resource for New York City's faith community. Our faith-based services and activities include advocacy opportunities, effective strategies for mobilizing communities, training and information services, and capacity building.

In addition, we connect our membership and faith partners to our extended network of policymakers, legislators, and other human services and faith-based organizations. We also work with churches and other faith-based service providers to bring a powerful, informed, united, and focused voice of the faith community to major social service and justice issues at the city, state, and federal levels. Our advocacy and broad range of services help our members and affiliates to operate with increasing effectiveness as change agents and social service providers in the city’s most underserved communities.

Guided by our faith and shared values, we seek to build a city of equal opportunity for all families and communities by reducing poverty, advancing upward mobility, and creating shared prosperity.

Please explore our faith-based services to find out how we can help you serve your community. If you’d like to receive our News for the Faith Community e-newsletter, which contains information about free workshops, funding opportunities, and other resources, please sign up below:
