According to Carole Kincaid, Regional Director, "The SCSEP is one of the best ways for faith-based organizations to access federal re- sources, particularly if they are small. Most of these organizations simply do not have the staffor infrastructure to effectively manage federal grants, nor do they want to deal with the bureaucracy that is involved. Through the SCSEP, they receive critical staffing support provided by older individuals who want and need to work, and who are eager to con- tribute their skill and experience to make a difference in the community. For example, 65-year-old Bonnie Rogers came to Experience Works unemployed and living with her daughter. She has a 9th grade educa- tion and a work background as a housekeeper and light assembly worker She had raised 10 children and depended on part-time employ- ment to supplement a very small social security check. Ms. Rogers was placed at the Madisonville Sal- vation Army Thrift Store to gain customer service skills. Ms. Rogers enjoys working with her hands and assists store personnel by sorting and restocking clothing and shelves. She hopes her training will help her se- cure enough income to move into her own apartment The White House's Faith-Based and Community Initiative is a na- tional effort by President Bush to strengthen the capability of faith- based and community organizations to better meet social needs in Amer- ica's communities. Experience Works is a national, nonprofit organization that provides training and employment services for mature workers. Established in 1965 as Green Thumb, and renamed Experience Works in 2002, the orga- nization reaches more than 125,000 individuals in all 50 states and Puer- to Rico each year Information about Experience Works and its programs can be found at www.experience works.org.
