CCHD works to break the cycle of poverty by awarding grants to local, low-income community groups, educating about root causes of poverty, and building bridges of solidarity. Programs funded by CCHD support self-sufficiency and self-determination for people who are working to bring permanent, positive, and systemic change to their communities.


You may support this mission by contributing to the annual collection in your parish (November 24, 2019) or using this page to donate online year-round. To learn more, visit or follow us on Facebook @CCHDchicago.
