When disaster strikes, we respond with food, shelter and hope. When barriers of distance, language or warfare separate loved ones, we open lines of communication. When families, co-workers and communities must prepare for emergencies, we help them take action.
Each year in our community, we bring together people to care for their neighbors, train people in life-saving skills and respond to a disaster about once every other day. In emergencies large and small - a house fire, an earthquake, a flood - right here in our community or on distant shores, people can count on the Red Cross.
Red Cross services are provided to clients free of charge and without bias, based solely on disaster-caused need. To find out if we can help you following a disaster, please contact our Disaster Services Team at (800) 853-2570 or 208-947-HELP (4357). This phone number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

From war to disease, the United States and our local communities are impacted by the events that happen around the world. As part of an International movement dedicated to saving lives, the Red Cross is in the unique position to engage our community around global humanitarian and health issues including International Humanitarian Law and the eradication of measles and landmines.
Many residents in Idaho have origins in other countries. When these families are unexpectedly torn apart by war, disaster or political crisis, workers at our local Red Cross chapters help re-establish communication between family members when no other communication is possible.
