National Service: A Resource for Faith-Based and Community Groups
Corporation for National and Community Service
Today, more Americans volunteer through religious organizations than through any other type of organization and 92 percent of faith-based charities report the ability to take on additional volunteers. The Corporation for National and Community Service is dedicated to ensuring that faith-based and community organizations have the capacity, tools, and volunteer power they need to help America's communities flourish. Working through thousands of charitable organizations, schools, and faith-based and other community organizations, the Corporation's volunteers and members have helped improve the lives of children and youth, bridge the digital divide, secure the homeland, protect the environment, and alleviate poverty for low-income families. The purpose of this booklet is to give the reader a better understanding of how the Corporation works with faith-based and secular community organizations and how they can help people accomplish their goals.
