Catholic Campaign for Human Development
November 19, 2016 - November 20, 2016
The national collection to support the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) takes place in parishes the weekend of November 19-20. CCHD works to uphold the dignity of human life by breaking the cycle of poverty across the United States through grants to local community-based groups who create jobs, improve education, and strengthen neighborhoods. Twenty-five percent of the CCHD collection remains in the Diocese to fund local anti-poverty projects; seventy-five percent supports national grant and education programs. CCHD helps break the cycle of poverty not just for one day, but for a lifetime.
