Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. We are motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ to cherish, preserve and uphold the sacredness and dignity of all human life, foster charity and justice, and embody Catholic social and moral teaching as we act to:
PROMOTE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT by responding to major emergencies, fighting disease and poverty, and nurturing peaceful and just societies; and,
SERVE CATHOLICS IN THE UNITED STATES as they live their faith in solidarity with their brothers and sisters around the world.
CRS uses a holistic approach called integral human development to help people reach their full potential. This long-term, dynamic process facilitates collaboration across civil society and the public and private sectors. It is based on the idea that human development cannot be separated into component parts and that personal well-being can only be achieved in the context of just and peaceful relationships. To promote such transformative and sustainable change, CRS engages people at every level—individual, family, community, regional, national and international. To help their staff and partners implement this approach, they provide them with a comprehensive user's guide.
