Catholic Campaign for Human Development

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) was launched in 1970 by the U.S. Bishops to develop ways to address the root causes of poverty and to fund groups working to break the cycle of poverty.

Since its inception, CCHD has made grants to community-based self-help projects created and managed by low-income Americans.  In the Diocese of Wilmington, CCHD has funded community organizaing and economic development projects through national and local grants.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is funded almost exclusively by an annual second collection in each parish every November.  CCHD is truly a grass roots fundraising activity to fund grass roots action on behalf of social justice.
