Connecting Congregations

THE NEW FUTURE INITIATIVE:

The New Future Initiative is the name of our program for connecting people of faith, community schools and local partners. Our belief is that through successful collaboration to support students we will change their life trajectory for the better and therefore create a new future for children and communities.

  • Our work to recruit communities of faith across the country for the “New Future Initiative” is ongoing.
  • To join us and find out how to connect with others in your city email Joi Orr, Director of Organizing at  jorr@faithforchange.org
