Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD)

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the domestic antipoverty, social justice program of the U.S. Catholic bishops. It was founded in 1969 with two purposes.

The first purpose was to raise funds to support "organized groups of white and minority poor to develop economic strength and political power."

The second purpose was to "educate the People of God to a new knowledge of today's problems . . . that can lead to some new approaches that promote a greater sense of solidarity."
