Changing the Way we Care

How CRS is working to deinstitutionalize orphans and other vulnerable children

Research shows that, of the millions of children living in orphanages, between 80-90% have a living parent, many of whom want to care for their children but don't have the resources they need. CRS' "Changing the Way We Care" project is establishing a framework for a regional and global advocacy and behavior change campaign, which is critical to long-term change in the way the world cares for orphans and other highly vulnerable children.
