Our Mission: The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its Congressional Charter and the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross Movement, will provide relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.

A Local Non-Profit Organization: Last year the American Red Cross responded to over 700 disasters in the Bay Area. That means that twice a day people like you went to someone's damaged home to help a family in need. But we don't just wait for disaster to strike. Red Cross volunteers work to prevent and prepare for emergencies by providing education and training for their neighbors and friends. There is a place for you at your Red Cross.

Responding Around The World: Whether a major earthquake rips through a South American city or a hurricane slams Hawaii, Red Cross volunteers provide disaster relief for the victims of disaster. Bay Area Red Cross Volunteers have traveled as far away as Alaska, Guam, Saipan and Puerto Rico to help families in need.

A Proud History: For over 120 years Red Cross volunteers have been guided by a single principle: to help people in need, regardless of race, religion, gender, or national origin. The Red Cross has been there, and will continue to be there—first, best and always—for disaster victims in need of food, clothing and shelter.
