The American Red Cross has served the people of Kansas City and Western Missouri for more than 100 years.

Our mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

We provide response to disaster victims, emergency communications for military families, preparedness information, international tracing services, and training in first aid, CPR and water safety. We also collect and distribute life-saving blood products.
