Fight Poverty in Caribbean Countries

Despite the Caribbean’s international status as a top vacation destination, up to 59 percent of the people in Caribbean nations live below the poverty line. Over 90 percent of people in Haiti, for example, are vulnerable to natural disasters, such as devastating hurricanes and earthquakes that affect long-term quality of life. In the Dominican Republic, there are severe needs for clean drinking water, nutrition, education, and medical care.

Cross Catholic Outreach is active in developing countries of the Caribbean to provide shelter, food, medical care, education, vocational training, and spiritual guidance to the poorest of the poor. Through all of our poverty work in the Caribbean and in everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility and spreading the hope and love of the Catholic faith. Please consider supporting our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean and helping them rise above poverty.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating an ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.05%

More than 94% of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
