Human Dignity and Solidarity

Education

In addition to providing grants that support low-income communities in their efforts to confront the injustices that affect them, CCHD seeks to provide education and promote understanding about poverty and its root causes. This dual strategy of investment in local, low-income communities and education for justice reflects the mandate of the Scriptures and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. These are just a few of the ways that parishes and individuals can encounter, learn, and take action around issues of poverty and injustice.
