NH Faith Groups: Work Together for the Common Good

July 19, 2007

New Hampshire's faith-based groups say it's about service, not money. Several of the state's largest faith organizations have joined forces to get more social services to more people without seeking federal faith-based funds. Dick Shannon is the chairman of the Faith Based Action Network of New Hampshire, and he says that while members of the network may be motivated by faith, their top priority is to work together to do good.

"People who come with their faith values are not looking to promote their faith values. Their primary reason is to be a good neighbor and to respond to people who have needs."

Shannon is also director of parish and community services for Catholic Charities. The network includes the New Hampshire Council of Churches, the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire, the Mormon church, and many others.

Shannon notes the groups will work together on a wide variety of issues, including things like emergency preparedness and juvenile justice.And they're looking to bring more faith groups on board.

"Faith Based Action Network of New Hampshire is a growing collective of faith-based organizations that seek to advance our efforts to serve people and to strengthen communities."
