The role of faith-based organizations (FBOs) in providing employment-related services was examined in an exploratory study of FBOs in the following cities: Baltimore, Maryland; Ft. Worth, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and San Diego, California. For purposes of the study, FBOs were defined as organizations that hold religious or worship services or are affiliated with a religious denomination or house of worship. Data were gathered through telephone discussions with local Workforce Investment Act (WIA) administrators or designated staff and representatives of random samples of 18 congregations/houses of worship and 9 nonprofit organizations presumed to be religiously affiliated. All five local WIAs contracted with FBOs. Although most of the religious congregations/houses of worship contacted did not formally provide employment-related services, one to three in each study city provided more formal or programmatic services that are work- related. A few congregations providing fairly substantial employment-related services served substantial numbers of individuals (several hundred annually). Like other employment service providers, FBOs offered a range of employment and supportive services, sometimes in combination with other services for their target populations. Lists of FBOs receiving welfare-to-work grants, workforce development boards contracting with FBOs, congregations providing employment-related services by city, and nonprofit FBOs in the study cities are appended.
