VOLUNTEERS:
The American Red Cross works within communities, providing relief
to people who have suffered a disaster. We also help people prevent,
prepare for and respond to a variety of emergencies. With your help,
the promise of neighbor helping neighbor in times of trouble becomes
a reality and our communities become safer places to live.

The Greater Houston Area Chapter of the American Red Cross recruits
and trains volunteers to help deliver services throughout an
18-county area. With the help of our dedicated volunteers the Red
Cross is the preeminent provider of life saving services, including
disaster preparedness, emergency social services, health and safety
training.

There are so many ways you can help save lives. Be a hero and get
