Out of Reach

Scott W. Allard

This chapter examines the differences and similarities between secular and faith-based organizations by comparing the service provision across secular nonprofit organizations and various types of faith-based organizations (FBO). Survey data from the Multi-City Survey of Social Service Providers grasp the characteristic of FBOs and religious congregations that claim to provide social services to low-income populations. It adds that although places of worship offering informal or infrequent aid, counselling, or relief, were not included in the survey, the organizations interviewed showed the faith-based providers are most ready to take advantage of a faith-based service initiative and most likely to have the capability to increase social service activities.

Keywords:   social service activities, faith-based organizations, places of worship, low-income populations, service provision
