The San Antonio Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, in partnership with the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, offers worldwide tracing services for family members whose lines of communication have been broken as a result of armed conflict, natural disaster or vulnerabilities such as age or ill health. For the displaced, these services provide hope and a way to restore contact with loved ones.

For the San Antonio Area Chapter, Service to the Armed Forces has been an important part of our mission from the Chapter’s beginning. Our Chapter was founded in 1916 to provide support and assistance to the military stationed in and around San Antonio. Today, we continue to serve military members and their families with emergency communications that link them with their families back home, access to financial assistance, counseling, and assistance to veterans.
