CRS in United States
Our work in the United States focuses on a single mission: to help Catholics here at home put their faith into action. The Gospel calls us to care for one another as brothers and sisters, to live as 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 emergency response, health and agriculture programs, among others.
CRS invites you to respond to the call for action by learning about the issues that keep our brothers and sisters overseas in poverty. We invite you to pray with us and to speak out for those whose voices are not heard. We invite you to get involved in the Church's work to care for our neighbors around the world.
Just as you support CRS to help the poorest and most vulnerable overseas improve their lives, we work with you to help build a world free from the devastating effects of poverty, war and injustice.
CRS has five regional offices around the U.S. 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.
