January is Poverty Awareness Month! Through more than 110 years of service, our agency has learned a lot about the complex and evolving nature of poverty. We know there is not a one-size-fits-all solution, so we turn on-the-ground insights and ongoing research and evaluation into effective, sustainable solutions for our community.

Honoring the dignity of each person, we help eradicate barriers that prevent individuals and families from living in full dignity and freedom. This month in particular, we want to share what we have learned in order to build a stronger community. Are you ready to learn more about poverty?


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.

Our Mission is to provide service to those in need, to advocate compassion and justice in the structures of society, and to call all people of good will to do the same.

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.


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.
