Caritas in North America

Caritas North America consists of three organisations from the United States and Canada. Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Development and Peace (Canada) have many tens of thousands of individual members and provide some of the largest emergency response, development, advocacy and other programmes to the united work of Caritas Internationalis. They work together with the Caritas Latin America and Caribbean region on common initiatives such as migration, peacebuilding and social and economic justice.
