Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CRI is a 501(c)3, charitable organization that mobilizes emergency relief supplies, volunteer workers, mobile kitchens, medical personnel, chaplains, and clean-up crews to assist people who are suffering in times of crisis and disaster.

We only deploy trained volunteers who have cleared a background check. CRí training is like no other. Regardless of how often you deploy with us, our training is designed to equip you to meet the urgent physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people affected by crisis and disaster. \n\nFor your safety and the people we serve and continuity of our mission we require all new volunteers to complete online Crisis Response Training, Course 1, or a live Basic Training (Boot Camp) and clear a background check before deployment.\n\nOnce you pass Course 1 and clear a background check, you will become a credentialed CRI Responder and Disaster Relief Volunteer. You will then be eligible to sign-up for deployment with us on relief operations around the world.

We have trained over 15,000 volunteers but we need more. We would like to expand our training capabilities at our training center in Blue Ridge, Virginia.

We recently launched an online training program that takes stress off of our training staff and puts training opportunities in front of many more people around the world. Simply put, more volunteers; more impact!

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Principal Officer

Sean Malone

With a background in the motion picture industry, Sean Malone moved back to New York just two days before the 9/11 attacks. There he provided emergency lighting for search and rescue operations. A few years later, Paramount Pictures sent him to New Orleans just a few days before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans; thrusting him into major relief operations once again. In 2007, he launched Crisis Response International (CRI) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Since then, CRI has trained over ten thousand volunteer responders, mobilizing them to the worst crisis and disaster situations around the world.
