Compassion Capital Fund Website Launches
The Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) launched its website in June 2003. CCF was created to help faith-based and community groups build capacity and improve their ability to provide social services to those in need.
The site (www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/ccf/index.html) offers helpful information about the fund, a detailed introduction to the history and purpose of the CCF National Resource Center, links to funding announcements and applications, and a toolkit for faith-based and community organizations. It also provides links to the 21 "intermediary organizations" whose purpose is to help smaller organizations operate and manage their programs effectively, access funding from varied sources, develop and train staff, expand the types and reach of social services programs in their communities, and replicate promising programs.
You can contact the Resource Center at (703) 752-4331 or Resource_Center@daremightythings.com for more information.
