The Catholic Campaign for Human Development
November 19th is the annual USCCB collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). CCHD is an amazing program that sponsors economic and social development projects in the poorer areas of the United States. Please watch this short video to see how CCHD helps struggling communities in our nation.
As of right now we do not have a CCHD funded project in the New Hyde Park area but our social ministry is very supportive of regional projects that our diocese has been able to do through CCHD. After Hurricane Sandy the diocese utilized CCHD funds to promote disaster relief resources to low-income parish communities affected by the hurricane. We hope that in the future we can promote further opportunities to help other struggling communities with the support of CCHD. Here is a handout that goes over the budget and financial distributions for these specific fund:
