Our Programs and Projects


Christian Relief Services and our project, Running Strong for American Indian Youth®, are working to change this through providing American Indian communities with food, water, basic relief, emergency assistance and support services for needy youth and their families including programs fostering self-reliance.

For decades we have worked to raise the standard of living in other countries, primarily in Africa through our project, Bread and Water for Africa®, We do this by supporting grassroots initiatives and hospitals by providing food, medicine, medical supplies, medical re-agents, clean water, education, vocational training, literacy and agricultural assistance.


Since 1985, Christian Relief Services has done all it can to help alleviate poverty across America. Through our project, Americans Helping Americans®, we provide emergency assistance, school supplies, new shoes and coats, hygiene items, food, home repair, and help with youth enrichment projects.


We have a Safe Places program that provides a home for a 24-month transitional time frame that serves homeless families fleeing domestic violence in Northern Virginia. Program participants are involved in weekly or bi-weekly case management sessions that focus on budgeting, permanent housing searches and the overall goal of obtaining self-sufficiency.
