NEW BEDFORD — The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the United States Catholic Bishops. Its mission is to address the root causes of poverty through the promotion and support of community-controlled self-help organizations and through transformative education. These efforts know no racial or religious boundaries. They aim to help all people find a way out of poverty for a lifetime.
