The Center for Faith and Community Partnerships, which is housed within the Mayor's Community Affairs Unit, seeks to transform the way faith communities and mission-based community organizations connect to City services. The Center serves as a direct link, connecting local and citywide coalitions of faith and community leaders to services that increase equity and inspire civic engagement throughout our neighborhoods. 

The Center on Faith and Community Partnerships (CFCP) was created in 2017 under the leadership of its founding Executive Director Jonathan Soto. The Center was an outgrowth of Mayor de Blasio's Clergy Advisory Council (CAC). Since 2019, the Center has been led by Executive Director, the Rev. Dominique C. Atchison, M.Div.
