Catholic Campaign for Human Development 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 community-based, self-help organizations and through education about poverty.  Founded in 1969, CCHD seeks to empower those living in poverty and to act on the principles of solidarity and the option for the poor that are at the heart of Catholic social teaching.
