Bush Praises Faith-Based Groups For Helping Needy
President Bush said Saturday that religious charities, partly financed with federal money, have helped reduce homelessness, found jobs for former inmates and helped combat malaria and HIV/AIDS overseas. Bush used his weekly radio address to trumpet the "remarkable difference these groups have made over the past eight years." Bush said: "Through their partnerships with the government, these organizations have helped reduce the number of chronically homeless by nearly 12 percent — getting more than 20,000 Americans off the streets. [And] They have helped match nearly 90,000 children of prisoners with adult mentors."

And faith based groups used their radio address to thank bush for making sure there are so many more needy people for them to take care of.

This is fabulous - I am so glad that there is another measure to help others.

Faith based charities generally do more good than government backed. The biggest reason is FBCs don't have as much overhead, so they can use a larger portion of every dollar on the people in need, and they have people who want to help, not just getting paid to help.
