We have one goal: building a world where there is enough for all

Our vision is a world where everyone has food, voice and a safe place to call home. We’ve been working to make this a reality for more than 75 years, and we know it’s possible. We’ve welcomed thousands of refugees and other new neighbors into our communities, helped countless families put food on the table and lifted the voices of people who have been left out.

We know that we can always do more together than we can alone. That’s why our work is for everyone. The CWS family stretches around the world and across the lines that divide us as a single force for good. Welcome to the movement. We’re glad you’re here.

Hunger and Poverty

No child should die from malnutrition, especially when there are long-term solutions ready to take root in each community.


More and more families flee home because of climate and violence. But there are fewer places to go. We’re leading the charge in strategy and welcome.


Preparation, relief and recovery: our disaster response means committing to communities before – and long after – an emergency hits.
