About the CFCP

The Center on Faith and Community Partnerships (CFCP) began in 2017 as an outgrowth of Mayor de Blasio’s Clergy Council, established in summer 2015. The Clergy Council was headed by Jonathan Soto, who serves as the Executive Director of the Center. The interfaith Clergy Council, and now the Center, are committed to raising the voices and concerns of many different faith groups in City Hall.

The Center is a direct line from New Yorkers in their faith communities and local organizations straight to City Hall. From mental health resources to food stamps and business development, the Center promotes NYC social services and facilitates access and enrollment to all that NYC provides.

Through our trainings, initiatives, and programs, the Center builds community capacity to mobilize civic action. We help your community network, organize, and access resources in four areas: Capacity Building, Diversity and Inclusion, Community Mental Health, and Tenant and Homeowner Resources.
