Catholic Campaign for Human Development
PROPOSALS DUE: April 16, 2018

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) was established in 1969 to empower groups of poor and low-income people to address the root causes of poverty in their communities. For the past forty-nine years, CCHD has worked to help people break the cycle of poverty, not just for a day, but for a lifetime. Through the generosity of parishioners, CCHD is able to help fund projects within the Diocese of Beaumont and throughout the United States, without regard to religious affiliation, which encourage self-sufficiency, education, and training. Non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations working to address social issues in the community are welcome to apply for these CCHD grants.  Viewing the parish community as inclusive of its entire geographical area, Catholic Charities, through the Parish Social Ministry office, administers the local grant funding process made available through these CCHD monies. For additional information on how to apply, please click on all the documents below:

Proposals will be due on April 16, 2018

Religious Liberty & Service to All

Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas is pleased to reflect the moral values of the Catholic Church in its services. Yet, in keeping with Catholic social principles, Catholic Charities shows no preference for any particular religion when serving those in need.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed grave reservations about threats to religious liberty emerging in America that could compromise the value-based services of institutions like Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas.

We invite you to take a few minutes to review the bishops' concerns regarding religious freedom and lend your voice of support and your prayers to the chorus of those asking God and national leaders to help our nation remain faithful to its heritage. Thank you!
