Abstract:
President George Bush announced his administration's faith-based social services initiative on January 29, 2001. Since then the administration's moves on this initiative have included establishing offices of faith-based and community initiatives in the White House and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and initiating new federally funded faith-based programs to serve prisoners, drug addicts, and others.

Saxon addresses the four questions listed in the title.
