Catholic Relief Services (CRS) carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas.  Catholic Relief Services is motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ to cherish, preserve and uphold the sacredness and dignity of all human life, foster charity and justice, and embody Catholic social and moral teaching, acting to:


  • Promote human development by responding to major emergencies, fighting disease and poverty, and nurturing peaceful and just societies and
  • Serve Catholics in the United States as they live their faith in solidarity with their brothers and sisters around the world

As part of the universal mission of the Catholic Church, Catholic Relief Services works with local, national and international Catholic institutions and structures, as well as other organizations, to assist people on the basis of need, not creed, race or nationality.
