In 2010 "The Cave" was created...

by Faith for the City which was an apartment in DC public housing that was converted into a music studio.  

The seed started in 1986 when Elder Cleo White,...

a mom, school teacher, and preacher started a church comprised mostly of her students and youth from several neighborhoods in Washington, D.C.  Though she was a longstanding member in an established church, she felt God's call to go to the highways and hedges.  Through her efforts along with her husband, Deacon Lionel White, they started Faith Temple Church.  In 2010, Faith Temple merged with its' mother church, Faith Tabernacle UHCA but the outreach ministry needs of the community necessitated the birth of Faith for the City, Inc. as a standalone non-profit organization.

The Arts


In 2013 the Academic Enrichment Program was introduced... 

by Danette White and operated out of the fellowship hall of Faith Tabernacle UHCA.  That summer was an explosive start to a dynamic program for Faith for the City.
