USCCB Looks Forward to Working with White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative

May 4, 2018

WASHINGTON–Yesterday, on the National Day of Prayer, President Trump signed an Executive Order announcing the establishment of the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative.

Jonathan Reyes, Ph.D., USCCB Assistant General Secretary for Integral Human Development, stated the following:

"We look forward to working with the White House on its Faith and Opportunity Initiative. Overcoming poverty and challenging other social problems like the opioid crisis takes all hands-on deck. The faith community has collaborated with government partners in this country at the federal, state, and local levels for a very long time.  We pray that we will continue to have the freedom and the space to serve the least of these, as the Gospel mandates."
