Where We Serve
Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Catholic Relief Services eases suffering and provides assistance to people in need in 101 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. Overseas, we work through CRS offices located in the regions of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Latin America and the Caribbean.
CRS also works through regional offices within the United States to support Catholic individuals, parishes and dioceses as they strive to live their faith in solidarity with the poor and make decisions as consumers, voters and advocates to promote more just and peaceful societies.
CRS serves Catholics in the United States by inviting them to live out their faith as part of one human family. As the official international agency of the Catholic church in the United States, we have a special role to play in helping those in need overseas. We work with the local Church and partners to create a world in which people stand in solidarity. CRS' relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.
