About Us

Church World Service was born in 1946, in the aftermath of World War II. Seventeen denominations came together to form an agency “to do in partnership what none of us could hope to do as well alone.” The mission: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, comfort the aged, shelter the homeless.

More than 70 years later the mission remains, though where and how we accomplish it has changed dramatically.  We are a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.
