The Red Cross welcomes volunteers in all of our service areas. However, at this time, there are a few roles that need to be filled most urgently. If you are open to exploring those opportunities, please click the button below.
Since 1900, the American Red Cross has been tasked by federal charter with supporting our nation’s military members. Today, we are the number a military family calls when they need to reach their serviceperson in an emergency. We are the smiling faces making the rounds at military hospitals, providing personal care items and encouraging words. And we are the respectful visitors paying tribute to veterans as they near the end of the journey. This important work is done by dedicated volunteers across the country and on American military installations worldwide.
Service to the Armed Forces Volunteers Support Military Members, Veterans & Their Families
Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are retired military themselves, continuing their service by volunteering with the Red Cross. Whatever their background, our volunteers are united in wanting to make the challenges of military service a little lighter for everyone from the front lines to the home front.
Hero Care Network Caseworker – Experienced caseworkers are often needed to work with military families accessing Red Cross services through our Hero Care Network.
Coping with Deployments Facilitator – People with strong communication skills and empathy are often needed to lead workshops for military families facing deployments.
