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.

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:
