Economic Development Activities of Urban Religious Institutions
Author: LAURA A. REESE and GARY R. SHIELDS
Published in IJED, Vol. 1 No. 2
This paper explores the nature and extent of faith-based economic development activities in an urban city and describes the institutions engaged in and the organizational arrangements used for implementing such strategies. Based on in-depth interviews with faith-based institutions in the City of Detroit it concludes that while economic development activities tend to cluster around housing and a mix of job training and social services, faith-based activities encompass a wide range including: business operation; job training; financial activities; citizenship training; cultural development, and cooperative efforts with Community Development Corporations and other faith institutions.
