Established in 1962, the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC), an independent agency of the Christian Reformed Church in North America, changed its name to World Renew in 2012. Initially a disaster response, relief, and adoption agency, the organization expanded its focus in 1979 to include community development and eventually merged a third focus, justice education, into its vision and mission. Today, World Renew is a well-established and experienced binationally-based Christian organization in the U.S. and Canada with a reputation for innovative and sustainable grass-roots development and disaster response and rehabilitation work in developing countries around the world.
