Crisis Response International, a Christian organization, focuses its works toward mitigating disasters and being prepared to respond and assist victims in support of their recovery when disaster or crises occur. Volunteer and staff teams provide food, clothing, shelter and medical care along with Christian teachings in places like Syria and Iraq with teams rotating in and out approximately every two weeks.

Crisis Response International works closely with local, state and federal disaster response teams and other volunteer organizations to coordinate its efforts. It is through this coordination and the training it provides its volunteers that the organization is able, according to its website, to provide services in places that are otherwise inaccessible. Its volunteers are trained to provide assistance consistent with the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency's incident command and national incident management systems, which are focused on coordinating and integrating public and private sector responses to natural disasters and crises.

Founded in 2007, the organization is affiliated with the global prayer movement.
