What's Working: Program Snapshots to Educate and Inspire




You’ve heard the saying, “A picture paints a thousand words.” Since our beginning in late 2003, FASTEN has collected dozens of “snapshots” (of sorts) of effective, multi-sector collaborations solving social problems in diverse communities throughout the nation.

In this new “What’s Working: Program Snapshots” feature on FASTEN, faith leaders considering launching new initiatives can “see” plausible models of ministry, gaining inspiration and creative ideas. As FASTEN learns of additional effective models, we will add them to our “photo album” for your perusal, so check back regularly to see what’s new.

Brief program profiles are listed alphabetically below by the type of social service offered. Please remember that this is in no way a comprehensive list of strong FBO programs! Rather, what you’ll find in the “What’s Working” department are brief sketches of programs that have come to FASTEN’s attention through our research, networking, and the Partners in Transformation competition. We welcome your submissions—if you know of a program achieving strong, demonstrable outcomes that other FBOs can learn from, please let us know by emailing us at
