The Catholic Campaign for Human Development was founded in 1969 to end the cycle of poverty. CCHD works to make real, lasting changes in the lives and communities of the poor. CCHD provides funds to community-based programs that empower people who are living in poverty to make permanent changes for themselves and their communities.
Since its beginning, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development has made nearly 8,000 grants to projects created and managed by people with low incomes. These projects aim to improve lifestyles and promote financial stability through fair housing, education, accessible health care and child care, and vocational training.
In the Archdiocese of Anchorage-Juneau, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development funds both national and local initiatives. Local initiatives include:
- Anchorage Faith & Action Congregations Together (Anchorage)
- Valley Interfaith Action (Mat-Su Valley)
- Sitka Food Co-op (Sitka)
The USCCB’s CCHD site includes additional educational and sharable resources such as:
- Prayer card
- Bulletin inserts
- Pulpit announcements and speaker’s guide
- Social media
- Sharable images
