Crisis Response International, or CRI, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We train and deploy volunteers from communities, churches and other independent organizations for the purpose of responding to disasters and compassion initiatives around the world.
CRI provides a framework for responding to disaster situations, We deliver resources to areas that would otherwise be off-limits to volunteers. Our specialized training avoids what the government calls “the second disaster” which refers to the chaos that often ensues when unplanned resources and untrained volunteers arrive on the scene.
We are able to also integrate with local, state, and federal response efforts when needed. We manage operations, resources and personnel on the ground in order to provide relief and services that assist victims of disaster and crisis. Volunteering with CRI requires the indivual or group to take CRI training.
Training & Beliefs
We are always looking for kindred spirits with a passion for helping others. If you feel called to help in our relief efforts, we strongly encourage you to train and become a responder! We offer free resources for everyday people to become effective responders when disaster strikes!
The most important thing here at Crisis Response International is our belief in Christ, and our statement of faith. The full content of what we believe can be read here. Understanding these beliefs is crucial to understanding CRI, First and foremost, we believe salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We also believe that God has called the Church to preach the gospel to all nations. Especially to remember the poor, and to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service. This ministry is an expression of the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an essential part of the kingdom of God. This speaks to why we do what we do here at CRI.Become a Responder
