After disasters, communities often turn to houses of worship for assistance, and with this understanding the American Red Cross is determined to build strong relationships with communities of faith to make sure that if, and when, there is a need, assistance will be there.

The Faith Based and Community Program’s services include disaster preparedness education, community outreach booths for events and adult first aid/CPR certification at a reduced price for low-moderate income communities. The program also gives partners the opportunity to host blood drives and participate in Sound the Alarm events, bringing home fire safety and free smoke alarm installations to their community.
