Mission Statement

Altagracia Faith and Justice Works empowers community leaders to put faith into action and promote social justice through faith formation, leadership development, service and advocacy opportunities, and through community organizing to effect essential local change.

Description

Altagracia Faith and Justice Works emerged as a new organization from the resounding affirmation of the importance of this community work in Northern Manhattan. After the closing of its predecessor organization, Altagracia Faith and Justice Works was founded in 2017 to continue working with the largely immigrant and Latino community of Northern Manhattan to put faith into action to promote social justice. With renewed interest and support from both long-time as well as new community partners, local parishes, and community coalitions, these stakeholders formed a new nonprofit entity, a new Board of Directors, and assumed new leadership positions to ensure that this critical mission continue.

Though our organization is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching and tradition, our programs and outreach are open to all, regardless of religious affiliation.

By organizing Social Justice Ministry Teams, empowered community members address pressing local issues such as affordable housing, homelessness, environmental justice, health, wellness, and nutrition. Through family development and youth development programs, we offer service-learning and advocacy opportunities, as well as community dialogue, reflection, and coalition-building resources and opportunities.
