Special Projects

Partners brings a unique perspective to the vital role that sacred places play as both houses of worship and as civic assets, thanks to our role as a nonsectarian national nonprofit. As historic places of worship face ever greater challenges from diminishing membership and resources, Partners has responded with an ever-growing family of tools to strengthen and protect these important community assets.

The programs on this page include both current and past projects that have explored various ways that congregations enliven and serve their larger communities.
