Resources Available at Your Local American Red Cross Chapter
With nearly 1,000 chapters across the United States, the Red Cross is there for every member of America's armed forces, whether he or she is living in the community as a veteran, on a military installation in the United States or abroad, or deployed in the field. Caring and concerned Red Cross workers support active duty, Reserve and National Guard service members and their families with emergency communications, access to financial assistance, counseling and veterans services.
Red Cross offices can also be found on many military installations: 154 mobile staff and 26,831 volunteers are currently assisting service members and their families on 109 military installations. Red Cross workers are also accompanying U.S. service members on overseas deployments in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Kosovo, providing emergency communications and a caring presence to service members separated from their families.
Local Red Cross chapters and offices on military installations offer numerous services important to members of the armed services and their families, including:
Access to emergency financial assistance
Information and referral
Safety and lifesaving skills training
