We are a Catholic ministry that collaborates with aid partners who employ a community-oriented aid strategy and who strive to increase the self-sufficiency of the poor. For larger, more advanced partners, we provide not only financial and material resources, but also handle the vital functions of monitoring, reporting and financial accountability. They, in turn, offer that all-important grassroots connection to the community – absolutely vital to the provision of humanitarian aid. For smaller scale or less advanced partners such as needy, church-based ministries, Cross Catholic Outreach provides support through their existing programs. In this way, we can supply meaningful help where it is needed most, as they have the necessary community outreach to serve the poor.
