Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships
"This work is important, because whether it's a secular group advising families facing foreclosure or faith-based groups providing job training to those who need work, few are closer to what's happening on our streets and in our neighborhoods than these organizations. People trust them. Communities rely on them. And we will help them."
-- President Barack Obama, National Prayer Breakfast, February 2009
