How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

1. Strengthen the model for sustainability.
2. Clarify and communicate Catholic Charities' brand and vision.
3. Explore a more prominent advocacy and leadership role.
4. Clarify outcomes and impacts and embrace continuous improvement.
5. Improve systems and technology.

Strategies vary by Service Area and by individual Program, but all strategies are filtered through Catholic Charities' mission, brand and messaging to achieve stated goals for each program.

In each Service Area, issue knowledge and community expertise is present at the Program level. All Programs benefit from support from centralized fundraising and administration.

Using a complex Theory of Change model to measure client outcomes at each Program, Catholic Charities is able to monitor success for specific client populations and program development.

Collective client outcomes are measured throughout the year and collected in reports that are posted on Catholic Charities website.
