Red Cross House
A unique program of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter, Red Cross House provides temporary, emergency shelter and support to victims of natural disaster in our region, helping them to rebuild their lives while keeping their families together.
The Red Cross offers vital programs to give our community the tools that it needs to get and stay prepared. Being prepared is key before, during and after a disaster strikes. See the many programs we offer you to help you get prepared.
Around the clock, every day of the year, our chapter stands ready to respond to emergencies. At every disaster, a volunteer or staff member assesses the victims' needs and provides food, clothing, and shelter and other services to help families take the first steps to recovery.
