Findings from The Survey of Community Services of Faith-Based Organizations in New Jersey

Abstract

Although welfare reform has placed a renewed spotlight on addressing social issues through local institutions, the mechanisms for achieving new public-private partnerships, particularly with faith-based organizations, are still being developed. This report presents the findings of a study conducted by the Urban Institute on the community-based services provided by faith-based organizations in New Jersey. It outlines the types of services offered by religious congregations and provides an analysis of the geographic location of services relative to community need.
