You can empower communities around the world.

Who are we?

CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) is a crisis response organization that brings immediate aid and recovery to underserved communities across the globe. 

A more equitable future starts with addressing the intersection of disaster and social justice. Head on. 

What can your impact look like? 


Can provide a hot meal for a person displaced from home by a humanitarian disaster 


Can supply a kit with soap, toothbrush, shampoo, and other vital sanitary items


Covers the cost of a blanket and fuel to keep a family warm in temporary shelters


Can provide tarping to cover a damaged home when CORE responds after a hurricane


Can provide critical debris removal tools so that a family can return home faster after an earthquake 

How are we different?

CORE responds quickly and nimbly to empower underserved communities in and beyond crisis. We tap into community knowledge through key partnerships to understand how to meet each local community’s unique and evolving needs. Our efforts are powered by the communities we serve and focus on addressing holistic needs beyond the crisis at hand. 

Your support saves lives and helps create a more equitable future for those who need relief most across the globe.

“The Plezi Mizik music project is a good project because it taught me to play guitar and changed my life. I get to go to places I never thought I could go. My dream is to become a great international artist. This has been my dream since I was young.”
