CCD was formally established in 1941 and incorporated from the Catholic Diocese of Dallas in 1997. Annually, CCD helps over 150,000 individuals achieve stability and self-sufficiency through financial literacy, employment services, education, food programs, immigration legal services, refugee resettlement, disaster services, and permanent supportive housing.
CCD is comprised of more than 30 individual programs serving the nine counties in North Texas that make up the Diocese of Dallas. Each individual program has a particular strength and service area that represents the diversity of the populations we serve, yet our efforts to restore dignity to our community members in need remain the same regardless of what program serves them.
From homelessness to hunger, from victims of abuse to refugees of war and oppression, from the hurting to the lost, we partner with our clients to serve them during their greatest time of need and continue to walk with them on their journey to self-sufficiency.
