Padua Program

Project Type: Self-Sufficiency

Project Stage: In Progress

The Padua Program, designed by Catholic Charities Fort Worth (CCFW), completely reworks the service delivery model to center on intensive case management, not individual programs. This innovative program offers a much more holistic, comprehensive approach that includes case management, individualized assessments and service plans, small caseloads, and financial supports. LEO will evaluate the impact of this innovative program through an RCT evaluation to measure: a) the impact of this new intervention on short and long-term life outcomes for people living in poverty and b) whether any positive results are large enough to justify the greater costs.
