New Poverty USA Website Offers Statistics, Stories, Resources To Catholics

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) and the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have created a website where “Catholics can learn about the state of poverty in the United States and concrete ways they can make a difference.” From the news release:
The website . . . will feature selected news stories related to the state of poverty in the United States. Also, on the county-level view of poverty statistics, visitors will be able to find examples of local organizations working to alleviate poverty in their communities.  
“We are committed to providing educational content related to poverty as well as hopeful examples of what we can do to make the state of poverty better,” said Ralph McCloud, national director of CCHD. "We welcome comments regarding the new site or suggestions for future feature articles or guest editorials."
