I joined the Faith In Place organization because I wanted to merge my work activities with the passion and spirit God has given to me. I found that Faith in Place truly cares about the communities being served and strives to sustain and improve their social service capacity. They are an example of how organization should operate and I am proud to be associated with them.

Faith in Place is a faith-based organization that works to protect and improve our environment. We are a unique organization in that we seek members of all faiths who recognize that our Creator has blessed us with the beauty and bounty of this world and who want to fulfill their role as good stewards of this grand creation. Faith in Place offers opportunities to those who seek to be such stewards to become involved in urban gardening, improving the energy efficiency of their places of worship, becoming effective advocates to protect the environment, teaching a faith based course on water and/or working with city youth on winterizing residences. I find the opportunity to be engaged in these efforts with people of different and diverse faiths a real blessing.

I became involved in Faith in Place because of the basic reasonableness of the leadership and staff I met at a workshop. Aggressively inclusive, practical and smart, fun, hopeful, yet serious about the huge amount of work that needs to be done if we are going to care successfully for our world -- this is an organization that is always a pleasure to be part of. Impeccable integrity is also a pretty great trait. Though the depth of knowledge and care is impressive, my experience is that Faith in Place organizers are really good at meeting people where we are and inviting us to join together in whatever attempts we can make on environmental issues. This is community-building at its best. While some worthy nonprofits suck energy out of us Faith in Place is the opposite - providing sustenance and cheer in the midst of many difficult challenges. For this I am grateful, and heartily recommend them.
