The American Red Cross Southern California Region proudly serves San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties.
The region responds to hundreds of disasters each year- from home fires to wildfires to floods and more. Our donors, community partners, volunteers and employees are part of a nationwide network committed to preventing and relieving suffering here at home, across the country, and around the world.
We are dedicated to providing help and hope to those in need. We provide food and shelter in emergencies; assist members of our armed forces, veterans and their families; teach lifesaving skills to ensure our communities are prepared to respond to emergencies, and so much more. All Red Cross assistance is free, made possible by the power of volunteers and the generosity of the American people.
The Red Cross empowers ordinary people to perform extraordinary acts in emergency situations. We train. We mobilize. We connect donors and volunteers to those in urgent need of a helping hand. Whether it is a wildfire or a heart attack, a call for blood, a call for help after a devastating home fire, or a call from a service member or military family in need, the Red Cross Southern California region is there.
The American Red Cross Southern California Region serves Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties and provides 24-hour emergency assistance to people affected by wildfires, home fires, floods and other emergencies and disasters.
Get prepared before disaster strikes! The American Red Cross provides easy-to-understand tools, tips and guidance on how to prepare your family for emergencies big and small.
When disaster strikes, the Red Cross is ready to provide a place to sleep, warm meals, clothing, emotional support and hope to those affected.
We could have just the opportunity you’re looking for ... whether it's training to respond to disasters, supporting a blood drive, delivering messages to members of our military, or connecting families displaced by conflict, we hope you'll join our mission.
We collect blood every day from donors who help ensure a safe supply of blood when it’s needed.
