Catholic Relief Services

MISSION

Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas.

WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES

In 1943, the Roman Catholic Bishops of the United States established Catholic Relief Services to help war-torn Europe and its refugees recover. 
Catholic Relief Services expanded its operations and opened offices in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

THE RESULTS
Today, CRS continues to work in creating a more just and prosperous world for all. Since the early 2000s, CRS has applied a theory of change grounded in the concept of Integral Human Development, or IHD, which promotes the good of every person and the whole person.
