Catholic Relief Services (CRS) was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States to serve World War II survivors in Europe. Since then, we have expanded in size to reach more than 130 million people in more than 100 countries on five continents.
A career at CRS offers an opportunity to make a profound difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable overseas. We operate in over 100 countries and have earned a strong reputation as leaders in humanitarian work. Our mission involves work to eradicate global poverty, respond to major emergencies and implement sustainable development solutions. We work with and through local partners including with Catholic institutions and structures, as well as governments and other organizations. CRS assists people based on need, not creed, race or nationality. Wherever you work and regardless of your role, at CRS you will help create lasting change in the world.
It’s not about imagining a better world—it’s about creating one. At CRS, we are inspired by faith and motivated by the men and women we serve.
You will find yourself immersed in work that is engaging, purposeful, and has lasting impact. We build upon our extensive partnerships, strong local reputation, and technical expertise to achieve impactful and sustainable outcomes. CRS values inform how we interact with our peers, partners and the people we serve. The work of CRS transforms lives, families and communities, and everyone at CRS plays a role in achieving our goals.
