The CITY•MOSAIC, Partnership of Churches connects churches through collaborations that transform and empower people and communities in poverty. With initiatives supporting education, affordable housing, job creation, family transformation and church revitalization, the organization envisions holistic, enduring life changes that liberate individuals, rebuild families and revitalize communities.
CITY•MOSAIC’s coalition of churches, in conjunction with the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety, organized a rally and group prayer event in October at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument that focused on crime and how churches can fight the systemic problems that lead to violence. They have also partnered with the Department of Public Safety to create crime prevention programs that emphasize education, affordable housing, employment and resources for families.
Plans also exist to engage with additional churches toward making the city a safer place to live.
