Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas.

As part of the universal mission of the Catholic Church, we work with local, national and international Catholic institutions and structures, as well as other organizations, to assist people on the basis of need, not creed, race or nationality.
