White House Office of Faith-based Initiatives

Welcome back!

I got a call today from the White House Office of Faith-based Initiatives. Were they asking about you?

They were asking about organizations who have received Compassion Capital Fund support to increase their capacity and would make a good story to tell about the success of the program.

Recently, one of the CCF sub-awardees, Trinity Church's Peacemakers Center got a call and a visit from the Faith Based Initiatives Office Director Jim Towey. Then the President used them as a good example of community based work in remarks he made at the Leadership Conference on 1 March 2005.

Your thoughts matter here--leave us a comment.
