About Us

  • American Red Cross North Texas Region
The American Red Cross serves the areas west of the Metroplex to the South Plains surrounding the Abilene area 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
I’m just a helper, traveling through life, trying to help another, said Red Cross volunteer and Katrina survivor Nelson Lanehart.

Our compassionate volunteers care for and support our friends and neighbors facing the worst moments of their lives due to disasters. We are also a part of a relationship with the North Texas Region who serves our neighbors down the street, across the country and around the world.

Our mission at the Red Cross empowers people to become survivors. Through trainings and preparedness steps, knowledge becomes action and action saves lives.
