Abstract

One of the community partnerships suggested by the Federal partners in the funding solicitation for sites was with the faith-based community. In conceptualizing and implementing their reentry programs, many of the 89 SVORI programs1 have developed strong collaborations with local faithbased agencies, including both individual faithbased organizations and umbrella groups representing numerous faith-based organizations in the community.
