Faith Communities

The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab (CIL), based at Brandeis University, launched in October 2018 to bring chaplains, theological educators, clinical educators and social scientists into conversation about the work of chaplaincy and spiritual care has partnered with Boston University School of Theology to launch Trauma-Responsive Congregations, supported by a grant from the Lilly Endowment. Chaplains in the Atlanta, Boston, and San Diego metro areas should learn more here.
