Cru’s compassionate and evangelistic outreach to people in need in the inner city was birthed in New York City in the early ‘80s and has now spread across the country. Responding to the biblical imperative to care for the marginalized and powerless, Cru Inner City seeks to help meet physical as well as spiritual needs.

In the New York metropolitan area, Cru Inner City partners with over 130 churches nestled in neighborhoods across the city. The team offers a variety of resources, including life-skills training, after-school curriculum for at-risk children, evangelism training and tools, and products like food and blankets.
