Brewer unites Arizona agencies, faith-based groups

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is bringing state agencies and faith-based organizations together to better serve the needy.

Brewer signed an executive order Friday, establishing the Governor’s Office of Faith and Community Partnerships as well as a state council.

Officials say both entities will promote and strengthen the collaboration of faith-based nonprofits and state agencies that offer services to more vulnerable populations.

They will focus on assisting children, the elderly, disabled and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

The governor will appoint a director to lead the office, which will be permitted to accept funding from government and outside agencies.

The Arizona Council on Faith and Community Partnerships will help will be staffed by individuals appointed by the governor and serve voluntarily.
