KNOW Poverty Hour
KNOW Poverty Hour

Join us for a KNOW Poverty Hour and find out what it means to us, those we serve, and how we plan to end it.

We’re trying to get the word out about our work in the community so that more people know about our programs and services. We want to engage with those interested in addressing issues right here in our community and beyond.

We invite you to join us for an introductory program we call our KNOW Poverty Hour that will allow you to hear about the work of Catholic Charities firsthand. During this time, you will learn about our vision of helping North Texas families out of poverty. You won’t be asked to make any financial contribution, but one of the staff will call you afterwards to ask your advice and feedback.

The KNOW Poverty Hour session is designed to increase awareness of poverty in our area and engage the community in our efforts to end it. Essentially, we want to KNOW all we can about poverty, so there is NO poverty!

“Aging in Place: The Financials of Caregiving"
“Aging in Place: The Financials of Caregiving"

If you are or may become a caregiver to a loved one, there’s a distinct possibility they will want to stay in their – or your – home for as long as possible. But along with the emotional and psychological costs come the financial ones, many of which can be eased with the right kind of knowledge and planning.

In her talk. “Aging in Place: The Financials of Caregiving,” Tena Burrell, president of Financial & Estate Planning Services, LLC, and a caregiver for family members for more than 20 years, will share with your members:

  • The differences between Medicare and Medicaid, what each covers and what they don’t
  • Why having long term care insurance is essential, even if your loved one never sets foot in a nursing home
  • How much you can expect to pay out of pocket for non-medical home care or companion services, day care or respite facilities

”What the Internet Doesn’t Tell You About Estate Planning”
”What the Internet Doesn’t Tell You About Estate Planning”

Even though death and taxes are inevitable, if you’re like most people, you’re not fully prepared to deal with either of them. So you pay an accountant to do your taxes, but rather than paying an estate attorney, you decide to do your will yourself by downloading a form off the internet.

According to estate planning and probate attorney Ross Tew, that’s a decision that could be life-altering for your loved ones – and not in a good way. In his talk, “What the Internet Doesn’t Tell You About Estate Planning,” Ross will help to dispel online myths about trusts, probate and guardianship, including:

  • What it takes to make a will valid in Texas
  • What it takes to have valid will take effect after its maker passes away
  • The consequences of different estate planning choices
