Pracademics and Community Change: A True Story of Nonprofit Development and Social Entrepreneurship During Welfare Reform presents the single unified case history of the Welfare Reform Liaison Project (Greensboro, North Carolina), the first faith-based community action agency in the country. The history is recounted by co-founder and CEO, the Reverend Odell Cleveland, and academic consultant Bob Wineburg. In an engaging conversational tone, this story captures the entire process of creating and growing a successful nonprofit organization-which 13 years later is still a success. Told by a black practitioner and white academic who find common ground despite significant differences in background, training, and outlook, this story also takes a frank look at the politics and race relations within social service networks.
