Office of Faith-Based Initiatives (OFBI)
The Office of Faith-Based Initiatives (OFBI) is committed and dedicated to bridging the gaps between Chicago Public Schools and the faith-based communities of Chicago.

Our mission is to establish effective partnerships with faith-based institutions city-wide. We understand the role of faith-based leaders as valuable resources and know that these partnerships actively engage the community and contributes towards the success of our students and schools.
