Times Features Religion-Based Social Services

In a front-page story titled Hispanic Group Thrives on Faith and Federal Aid, today's New York Times profiles at length the largely successful work of Philadelphia's Nueva Esperanza Inc. Funded from the federal government's Compassion Capital fund, the group trains smaller social-service organizations around the country. The Times reports that the Compassion Capital fund spent $43 million last year on aid to religion-based social service groups.
