More than 37 million people in the United States live in poverty. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) supports those living in poverty by funding programs that empower local communities to address the challenges they face. It identifies and addresses the unique obstacles people face as they work to lift them selves and their communities out of poverty. In addition, 25% of the funds collected remain in this diocese to fund local antipoverty projects. The theme of this year’s collection is “CCHD: Working on the Margins.” More information about the CCHD can be found at on the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops website here.
Help those who are working on the margins with your prayerful and financial support of the Campaign for Human Development.
