What We Do
Equipping churches and ministry organizations to reach more people in deeper ways
Urban Alliance provides support and leverages resources, relationships and research-informed best practices to help churches and ministry organizations in the Urban Alliance network implement strategic best practices so they may help more people in our community in deeper, more transformational ways.
We lead five initiatives to help our network participants build their capacity to address specific needs in our community and carry out best practices in serving people.

The Urban Alliance network is comprised of Connecticut–based organizations that provide direct services in the community that align with Urban Alliance initiatives.
