The Role of Social Capital in Building Healthy Communities

Schneider, Jo Anne

Annie E. Casey Foundation

2004

This report focuses on the role of community-based institutions—particularly nonprofits and faith communities—in fostering social capital and building healthy communities. This report uses case studies from four cities: Philadelphia, the Washington DC metropolitan area, and Milwaukee and Kenosha, Wisconsin to illustrate various aspects of social capital, local social service delivery systems, and the role of faith communities in supporting families and communities.
