Reduce Povery in America

We hope you will endorse Catholic Charities USA's Campaign to Reduce Poverty in America. The goals of the Campaign are:

* To reduce poverty in the United States by 50 percent by the year 2020.

* To call upon the government to do more to serve those who are poor, and to improve public policies that strengthen and support families.

* To educate policymakers and the public about the struggles of those living in poverty and the good work of those who serve them in local communities.

* To engage those who are most impacted by government policies to be active participants in developing solutions to reducing poverty.

* To work with individuals and organizations across the country to address poverty in our country.

Please join us in this fight to reduce poverty and support those in our communities with limited resources. Go to Below the menu on the left side, click on Poverty in America.
