CREATING Hope 2020
The journey out of poverty is never as simple as moving from point A to point B. Each family’s path to their bigger, brighter future is as different and unique as they are.
Join Catholic Charities Fort Worth (CCFW) for an amazing virtual journey across our 28-county service area, from our Fort Worth headquarters to our Northwest Campus and beyond.
Join Us for this virtual journey through
our past and a look at the future ahead
Catholic Charities Fort Worth (CCFW) is a learning organization that ends poverty by creating solutions, eradicating barriers, and transforming the conversation around poverty. Founded in 1910, CCFW holds true to its Catholic roots while continually evolving and refining services to better benefit those we serve.
We strategically challenge the way poverty is addressed nationwide by scrupulously testing the effectiveness of our own case management methods through research partnerships, exporting our known-solutions to other non-profits, and serving as a resource for what works on a local, state, and national-level. We invite you to come and check out our nonprofit 2.0 approach.
We Need to Know. Not Assume.

Join Us for KNOW Poverty
Sign up for a virtual KNOW Poverty Hour for a behind-the-scenes look at how we are ending poverty, one family at a time.
We serve tens of thousands of individuals and families in our 28-county diocese each year.
WE CREATE LASTING IMPACT
In 2019, more than 200 families left poverty behind for good through our services.
That’s 200 families who:
Earn Living Wages
Have No Inappropriate Debt
Have Demonstrated Savings Behaviors And Have Established A Savings Account
Are Free Of Government Assistance.
Most importantly, that’s 200 families living the bigger, brighter future they deserve.
