46.2 million Americans lived at or below the poverty line in 2010, an increase of over 2 million since 2009. With many families living one paycheck away from financial instability, there is little hope that more Americans won’t face poverty in the years to come.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) funds programs in communities across the United States where people living in poverty join together to identify problems, make decisions, and find ways to improve their lives and neighborhoods.
Your support helps end poverty one community at a time. Please visit www.usccb.org/cchd to read more about CCHD’s efforts to spread Christ’s love by helping to break the cycle of poverty in your community and across the country.
The collection date for Catholic Campaign for Human Development is November 18th. Envelopes for the collection are in your monthly contribution packet.
