Some of the shelters shown on the map may be operated by partner agencies and are not Red Cross shelters.
American Red Cross services, including food and shelter, are always provided at no cost – a gift of the American people.
Who is Eligible?
Everyone is welcome at a Red Cross shelter. The Red Cross does not discriminate based on nationality, race, religious beliefs, class, disability, political opinions, sexual orientation, or gender identity. If you need to leave your home due to a disaster or emergency, you are welcome to come to a Red Cross shelter.
Your service animal is also welcome. Please speak with a shelter worker if your service animal is in need of food or supplies.
What to Bring (And What Not to Bring)
Emergencies can happen suddenly and you may not have time to pack. Your safety is most important – grab your loved ones and get out of harm’s way! However if you do have time to pack, please consider these tips.
You can also access these services even if you don’t need a place to sleep: anyone with a disaster-related need can visit the shelter to be directed to the appropriate resources.
During some emergencies, we may also be able to provide other important services, such as:
Leaving the Shelter
We know you will be eager to return home as soon as the danger is over. In many cases, the Red Cross and our partners can help you do so: with clean up supplies; meal delivery to areas that lack power and water; and a case worker to help you access any available funding for your repair efforts.
If your home will not be ready right away, we will help you locate transitional housing. Red Cross shelters don’t close until all of our guests have a safe place to go!
