January is Poverty Awareness Month!

During Poverty Awareness Month, join the U.S. bishops, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and the Catholic community in the United States in taking up Pope Francis' challenge to live in solidarity with the poor! Daily reflections (en Español) include ways to learn about poverty, get inspired by how communities are responding, and take action with others.

You can also have the daily reflections emailed to you during Poverty Awareness Month!
