Catholic Campaign for Human Development
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development
(CCHD) is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S.
Catholic bishops. Its mission is to address the root causes of poverty
in America through the promotion and support of community-controlled,
self-help organizations and through transformative education. CCHD is
funded through an annual national collection in the parishes. Eligible
projects must have a board that represents the low-income community where
they are located.
CCHD in the Archdiocese of Newark enables organizations
and parishes to address social justice concerns in their communities.
