One of the ways the Episcopal Church addresses domestic poverty is through its Jubilee network, which consists of over 600 Jubilee Ministry Centers. These centers empower the poor and oppressed in their communities by providing direct services, such as food, shelter, and healthcare, and also by advocating for human rights.
The Justice and Advocacy Fellowships provide financial support for service-oriented, professional development and education for persons committed to directly engaging poverty alleviation (Mark of Mission 4) and environmental stewardship (Mark of Mission 5). Application deadline is May 9, 2014.
