How Cross Catholic Outreach is making an impact
In countries throughout Latin America, Cross Catholic partners with local ministries committed to reaching the poor.

Our hope is not just to meet their immediate physical needs, but to walk with them on a journey to a more prosperous and Christ-centered future. We provide food, water, shelter, medical aid, education and the tools to rise out of poverty.
