Abstract

In America today, homelessness is coming under increasing pressure by federal, state, local, and faith-based providers of prevention and intervention services. American philanthropy makes a response to this pervasive problem possible through faith-based institutional and local efforts that facilitate the effectiveness of governmental programs designed to eliminate long-term homelessness by 2014. Faith-based providers of services are on the front line of efforts to wrap services around willing participants who build or rebuild effective social and instrumental resources. Most homelessness is temporary and even long-term homelessness often responds to supportive services delivered in a stable housing environment.
