Mission Statement:

Worcester Interfaith develops leaders and organizes power to work for social justice and change.

Founded in 1993, WI is a multi-issue, multi-racial broad based community organization, comprised of 25 dues-paying institutions that reflect the religious, racial, ethnic and geographic diversity of the city. WI has built bridges between congregational and community leaders and across religious, socio-economic, racial and ethnic boundaries to accomplish much in the areas of jobs, neighborhood improvements, public safety, education and youth, and draw attention to the disproportionate ways in which these issues affect low-income and minority populations.
