When disasters strike, strike back as a Red Cross volunteer! Join our Disaster Team and do something great by supporting one of our most vital volunteer roles.

Shelter Support
All forecasts point to a higher-than-average hurricane and wildfire season. We need volunteers like you to ensure families don’t face tough times alone. Compassionate and committed individuals are needed to support sheltering efforts this disaster season. Shelter volunteers support the day-to-day activities within a shelter which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information or other vital areas within a shelter. Train now to be a Red Cross Shelter Volunteer so you can answer the call directly help those affected by disaster.

Healthcare Professionals
Are you a licensed health care professional? If so, you can join the cadre of healthcare professionals who have served as the core of the Red Cross since the very beginning of the organization. Provide quality care in disaster shelters to help assess people’s health and provide hands-on care in alignment with your professional licensure in our RN-led model. Duties include assisting clients with activities of daily living, providing health education and helping to replace medications, durable medical equipment or consumable medical supplies. Daily observation and health screening for COVID-19-like illness among shelter residents may also be required. If you are an RN, LPN, LVN, APRN, NP, EMT, paramedic, MD/DO or PA with a current and unencumbered license, please consider volunteering. You’re one step closer to making the world a better place!
