"In January 2007, the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives launched a series of monthly Compassion in Action Roundtable meetings to highlight organizations, programs, and policies addressing critical social needs. The Roundtables convene and facilitate discussion among policymakers, government officials, philanthropists, and faith-based and community service providers around targeted issues. [...] The following report offers an overview of the May 2008 Compassion in Action Roundtable, entitled Partnerships in Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery: The Role of Faith-Based and Community Organizations in Building Resilient Communities. Please note the statistical information presented throughout the report reflects data available up to the time of Roundtable, and excludes any data collected after May 2008."
