CRS Homes and Communities Strategic Change Platform: FY20-22 Progress Update

Across the world, more people are displaced than any time in recent memory, due to circumstances beyond their control: Climate change, conflict, natural disasters. CRS recognizes that losing a home can precipitate other life-altering challenges: separating people from their loved ones and support network, and limiting access to food, water, health and social services, education and livelihood options. We believe a safe home and community are the starting point for recovery.
In this update, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) shares a dynamic report on its efforts since 2020, when it launched a commitment to re-design its emergency shelter programming so as to focus on safe homes and communitiesand looking at home as the entry-point for comprehensive support to help people rebuild their lives. You'll read about activities that have taken place across 25 countries, in diverse contexts, that supported families and communities through direct programming as well as collaborations that effected systems-level change.
