The Commission on Faith-Based and Interfaith Affairs guides and consults the City on behalf of Philadelphia’s faith community.
The Commission on Faith-Based and Interfaith Affairs convenes a diverse array of members and leaders of local religious congregations, faith-based organizations, and nonprofit agencies in order to empower greater engagement and advocacy by all residents.
The commission will provide guidance and consultation to City departments and agencies with the goal of promoting greater access by all residents to City resources and available services. It will also encourage residents’ contributions to the quality of civic life.
