Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

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