Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) convened top leaders from several of the nation’s largest humanitarian organizations and advocates last Friday for a CEO Roundtable that resulted in the identification of tangible opportunities to educate, innovate and act to reduce poverty in this country that address the needs and reality of our time.
Brought together by Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), leadership from Alliance for Children and Families, Bread for the World, Feeding America, the Jewish Council of Public Affairs, Lutheran Services in America, National Alliance to End Homelessness, Save the Children, The Salvation Army, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and United Way all agreed to work together in 2014 to reduce poverty in communities across the country.
“Throughout our history, the Catholic Charities movement has been a leader in bringing about pivotal social change. That is our legacy and heritage. And the great challenges and needs of today call us to do the same,” said Rev. Larry Snyder, President of Catholic Charities USA. “Today, we agreed to work together to make the big ideas we are talking about a reality and create opportunity for the millions of people in this country in need.”
