Publishers Description Given the increased pressures and higher demand on social-service organizations, faith-based providers must find ways to increase their effectiveness while maintaining their religious distinctiveness. Serving Those in Need provides practical answers for those engaged in the delivery of human and social services. The editor and contributors draw from their deep commitment to faith, from a sense that religion plays a powerfully important role in people's lives and in our public life. For those who view service to others as a means of realizing their faith, this book will be tremendously useful.

Reviews - What do customers think about Serving Those in Need : A Handbook for Managing Faith-Based Human Services Organizations?
Excellent resource Nov 7, 2002
I am exploring Faith-based initiatives for my thesis, so read this book. What a great "how-to" book, for any faith-based organization venturing into the provision of government funded human services. Easy to read, practical information, experienced, knowledgeable authors. Mine came from the library, but I'm buying my own in hopes of using it in the field someday.
