A Story of Faith in Action
Here is the story of Faith in Action, the acclaimed nationwide
grant program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that brings
together Americans of all faiths to provide volunteer care and
support to those in their communities who are confined to their
homes because of a chronic health condition or disability.
But this book is far more than simply an account of the Faith in
Action program. Through a series of revealing in-depth interviews
conducted in three very different parts of the country, Promise
to Mary provides a unique and often profoundly moving glimpse
into the lives of some of our most isolated and forgotten
neighbors?as well as the remarkable volunteers, from all
faiths and from all walks of life, who have come to their aid.
