The American Red Cross Central and South Texas Region serves 80 counties, home to more than 6.3 million people. For more than 100 years, volunteers in every corner of the region have provided hope and comfort to their neighbors in crisis. We convene the community to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies large and small.
Our services include disaster relief and preparedness; lifesaving CPR and first aid training; international family tracing; and support for military, veterans and their families. Headquartered in Austin, we have locations in San Antonio, Waco, Bryan, Laredo, Del Rio, Kerrville and Midland—with volunteers located in every county in between, just a phone call away.
In Fiscal Yer 2016, the Central & South Texas Region:
- Provided assistance to 1,140 families following a single- or multi-family fire
- Taught 55,817 individuals lifesaving skills through classes in CPR, AED, first aid and aquatics.
- Provided 14,839 military family casework services, including emergency messages, reconnection workshops, and/or get counseling and referrals.
These Red Cross services are made possible by the generous contribution of time from more than one thousand volunteers!
