Catholic Relief Services – CRS
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)


Catholic Relief Services (CRS) was founded in 1943 and carries out the commitment of theBishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. We are 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 as we act 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, we work 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.
