Who We Are
We are a start up faith-based intergenerational 501 3-C nonprofit initiated by the Chicago Metropolitan Association of the Illinois Conference of the United Church of Christ. Off the Pews: Faith in Action was birthed out of a community based call to action focused on reducing youth violence.
What We Do
In collaboration with community partners, we accomplish our social justice mission by operating three hubs: youth, intergeneration and older adults. Each hub provides programs that meet the unique needs of the communities we serve, and reflect our core values of human and communal flourishing, inclusion, transparency, and collaboration.
Who We Serve
We serve an intergenerational population of people from various backgrounds, demographics and geographies to support our core value of inclusivity. However, we primarily work within urban community.
