Who We Serve

Each year, CRS supports more than 150 million people in more than 100 countries. For over 75 years, we have worked in tandem with a network of 2,000 local partners and the people we serve.

We are proud of this history. Despite times of struggle and setback, our faith has driven us through the decades to build a world-renowned, billion-dollar organization. It is a blessing and a privilege to reflect on the people CRS has reached, and the supporters who made this possible. Please enjoy these stories of compassion and perseverance, while celebrating everything that makes us one human family.
