Program Areas

CRS strives to continually increase humanitarian and development outcomes and advance integral human development for the people we serve. We build on global presence and networks, productive and mutually respectful partnerships and technical expertise across eight program areas to reach people with life-saving and life-transforming programs.

The greatest impact of our capacity strengthening approach and model is achieved when it’s applied not only for stand-alone organizational capacity strengthening projects, but when it’s also integrated into the design and implementation of projects in each of the program areas.

Effective capacity strengthening with local partner organizations drives both optimal organizational performance and improved program outcomes
