Historical Note

The Campaign for Human Development (later the Catholic Campaign for Human Development) was founded as a national public education and development program by the United States Catholic Conference (known since 2001 as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) in November 1969 through a resolution. The campaign was implemented in 1970 with two goals. The first goal was an educational effort to inform Americans about the extent of poverty in the country. Secondly, and the primary goal of the organization was to raise funds for projects, not always under the direction of the Church, to combat poverty. During the first decade of the organization's history most of the funding went to grass-roots programs to aid the poor through economic cooperatives in inner city neighborhoods, cooperative medical clinics, economic development programs, legal aid for discrimination, bi-lingual media outlets, and housing developments. Most of these funded grant programs were also aimed at disadvantaged minority groups such as Native Americans, Latinos, and African Americans. There were also job training programs in depressed areas in the northeast during the mid 1970's recession, and programs for depressed areas in Appalachia.

In order to achieve the first goal of education the CCHD developed media outlets to get their message out on poverty. For example, a working relationship was developed with the Franciscan Commission of the Council of Churches, and the Curriculum Development Center of the Catholic University of America (CUA). The CCHD also was very successful at raising funds breaking USCC funding records with its November 22, 1970 church collection of $8.5 million dollars. The funds raised from these collections were given to the national organization, 75%, and the diocesan level, 25%.

In order for a program to have been funded it must be approved by the national committee and must meet the criteria that the project would be run by the poor themselves, hence the self-help goal of the CCHD. Also, the main areas of focus for grant projects are employment opportunity, health, housing, education, social action, legal rights, and community organization. Overall, the main criteria to get funding for a CCHD project was to meet the main areas of focus and for the program to be a self-help program to be ran by the poor with a cooperation with the non-poor as well. Since 1970, the CCHD has given $75 million dollars in grants and has aided 215 projects annually.

The seventh series contains correspondence of funded grant programs with the national office of the CCHD in Washington, D.C. Most of this correspondence is progress reports of different projects, and requests for further funding. Some of the correspondence is also mission statements of the goals of each new funded project. The next series contains various leaflets and brochures of different funded grant projects from 1977-1978. There are also a few small posters advertising the CCHD, and the services they provide to further social justice and anti-poverty initiatives. The last series contains research conducted by Dr. Paul Sullins and McCarthy from 1978-2001. Most of this research consists of surveys and a small of correspondence with different grant projects tracking their progress and to study if self-help organizations are successful and sustainable with CCHD funding. The surveys also give great insight of the different types of self-help programs funded by the CCHD and the different demographics that they have served. Overall, the CCHD can be helpful to researchers working with Latino outreach within the Catholic Church in America during the 1970s, as well as poverty outreach with other minority groups during the 1970s.
