The American Red Cross Western Pennsylvania Region, which serves 28 counties, helps people to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters big and small. Each year we provide assistance following more than 1,000 area disasters, most of which are home fires.

Our Mission

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

We are guided by seven fundamental principles: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
