Join a Community of Changemakers

Have you ever wondered, “What can I do to make our world a better place? How can I make a difference?”

Catholic Relief Services Chapters and Clubs are communities of people transforming the world. As part of a movement across the United States, thousands are taking meaningful action through CRS campaigns to eradicate global poverty and injustice. Adults and university and high school students take our campaign work further by engaging their communities in advocacy and community giving to make a difference. The world’s problems are big and complex, but when we come together in faith and action our impact knows no bounds.

Young people attend trainings to achieve their dreams and transform their communities. Communities have the resources they need to stay healthy and thrive. Students receive the proper nutrition needed to focus on their studies. Refugees have access to basic necessities and welcoming communities. Farmers recover from natural disasters and become more resilient to a changing climate.

“My CRS Chapter provides the training, the community to feel confident and the knowledge to be politically involved and bring about systemic change.”

“The CRS Club has allowed all of the club members, who are freshmen through seniors, to see the ‘Two Feet of Love’ in action, and to participate in it through advocacy.”

- Alanna Heyl, CRS Club advisor, St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School

“As a student, CRS gave me a world perspective on the Church by helping me understand how we are all connected and invited to work as one body to uplift each of our members.”
