Key Takeaways

  • Leaders within the faith-based communities need to come together to ensure that they are helping each other during their times of need. A faith-based action team is a strong way forward.
  • Faith-based organizations can help match people who want to help with people who need help. It’s all about coordination, both internal and external, to see that those with needs are paired with those who can provide the services.
  • It is important to judge the success of recovery in incremental steps. It might be unreasonable to expect a drastic increase in a community or congregation; smaller, steadier increases are good indicators of strong community involvement.
  • Faith-based communities touch people’s lives in many personal and profound ways. Making sure faith-based communities are linked in with the broader community is important to ensure that all personal needs are being met.
