Poverty USA - Make a Difference!

One In Six

Did you know - today 37 million Americans - 1 in 6 children - are struggling in poverty, making hard choices between food, health care, heat, and rent?

To bring attention to this national crisis, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has launched a new set of public service announcements (PSAs) for television, radio and print markets. The 2007 PSAs have been distributed to media outlets and can be viewed online. You may see these ads running on television and in the print media.

January is Poverty Awareness month. The website for Poverty USA contains wonderful resources in English and Spanish such as poverty facts, a poverty quiz and other material useful to raise awareness on poverty in the United States in your parish and community.

For information on Poverty USA and CCHD, contact Linda Batton at or by phone at 408-983-0158.
