Red Cross Disaster Relief

After a disaster, communities and families turn to the Red Cross for help—and we stand ready to provide comfort and care—free of charge.

The Greater Chesapeake Red Cross helps thousands of disaster victims by providing safe shelter, hot meals, essential relief supplies, emotional support and health services like first aid. Trained Red Cross workers, as part of our Disaster Action Team, meet one-on-one with families after a home fire, to develop individual plans and identify available resources to help aid recovery.
