A Strategic National Grant created a unique partnership between the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops-Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the National US Council of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), and local community organizations in five states across the country: LA, FL, WI, OH, and MA.
The proposed project utilizes the existing Catholic infrastructure in the area of social ministry/social action by teaming the National US Council of SVdP, the local CCHD network in each state, and highly successful local organizations that have proven outcomes on impacting the lives of ex-offenders.
The goal of this proposed project is to support the human development of the formerly incarcerated/ex-offenders in a holistic, empowering approach. SVdP members will work directly with those returning citizens from the participating community organizations of each city & state and, together, will help rebuild the ex-offenders’ lives.
