Why We’ll Never Know Enough.
We have learned a lot about poverty since we began serving the community, nearly 112 years ago. One of the most important things we have learned is the value of our own self-awareness as an organization and the fact that, though we will never know enough about poverty, we must never stop learning.
January is Poverty Awareness Month. It is a fitting time of year to reflect on what we know about poverty and how our insights and experiences influence our approach as an agency. Check out our most recent blog post below to learn about three key lessons that guide everything we do!

Catholic Charities Fort Worth (CCFW) is a learning organization that believes every person should have the opportunity to live their best life, free from poverty. Founded in 1910, CCFW works every day to make this vision a reality, serving tens of thousands of people in North Texas, and across the nation, each year. CCFW is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching and reflects these values through our client-centered approach and commitment to ensuring our practices meaningfully impact the lives of those we serve.
We strategically challenge the way poverty is addressed nationwide by creating solutions to meet the evolving needs of our community, eradicating the barriers keeping people in poverty, and transforming the narrative around poverty through advocacy and collaboration. To learn more about our unique approach, register for one of our virtual KNOW Poverty Hours here.
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.

WE CREATE LASTING IMPACT
We measure success by end-goal impact, but we recognize the end goal looks different for each client.
That’s why we have developed a multidimensional framework to capture the complexity of poverty and better tailor our services to clients’ needs. These are our Out of Poverty Pathways:
