As part of its new agency vision and strategy for 2030, CRS is committed to expanding its comprehensive shelter solutions and global influence to enable families and communities to recover from crisis, and flourish in safe, dignified homes and communities. When a crisis strikes, lives are upturned. The loss of a home can fracture a family’s identity, and have a grave impact on safety, health, prosperity, emotional well‑being and dignity. Today, more than 70 million people are displaced. As outlined in this overview, CRS is embarking on a bold path--built on decades of experience and partnerships--to increase our support to disaster-affected people by 2030. The increase in our direct programming will allow us the opportunity to demonstrate and influence local approaches that can be adopted and brought to global scale. As part of our 2030 vision for transformational change at scale, we will seek to influence peer agencies, local responders, stakeholders and governments to implement new, innovative approaches to improve efficiencies in the humanitarian system. We see safe homes as the first steptoward uprooted families rebuilding their lives.
