Partners for Sacred Places
Reimagine Your Community | Reimagine Your Sacred Place
Across America, many places of worship suffer from declining attendance, constrained resources, and the burdens of aging, under-maintained, and over-scaled places of worship. Congregations of nearly every faith face challenges of unanticipated magnitude. Once an object of civic pride, these historic sacred places now pose a serious challenge to many denominations and congregations.
Twenty-five years ago, Partners for Sacred Places, a non-sectarian, national, not-for-profit, was born to passionately and compassionately confront these emerging challenges, to address the many issues relating to Sacred Places at Risk, and to partner with religious and community groups at every level to find solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems.
Partners is now celebrating twenty-five years of accomplishments in addressing these challenges, and has built a national movement based on its ability to assess issues, map assets, find solutions, and create optimism and hope for the future of our historic, purpose-built sacred places.
