Catholic Campaign for Human Development in the Diocese of Brooklyn

Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens supports the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), a social justice program which sponsors projects that help poor and low-income people help themselves. Every year, to help break the cycle of poverty, the Diocese of Brooklyn issues grants to projects that not only address the root causes of poverty, but seek to empower the poor, the disabled, minorities, workers and immigrants. Eighty-six cents out of every dollar received by CCHD goes directly to community empowerment, economic development and education programs.
