Its mission is to assist the poor and disadvantaged, leveraging the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to alleviate human suffering, to promote development of all people, and to foster charity and justice throughout the world. As of 2013, CRS operates on five continents and in 91 countries. Funding for the organization comes from the American Bishops' Overseas Appeal (ABOA) as well as public and private grants and individual donors. CRS partners with a variety of US-based and international organizations, both secular and religious. CRS is a member of Caritas Internationalis.
