During Military Appreciation Month, take a look at our Service to the Armed Forces (SAF)

The Red Cross has been supporting the brave men and women through the Service to the Armed Forces Program (SAF) since the 1800s.  Read the rest of this blog and get a brief over view of our services or visit redcross.org to become a volunteer!

Deployment Services

Upon deployment, whether it is the first or one of many, the Red Cross offers information and workshops to help prepare for the practical and emotional challenges ahead. From putting together a communication plan, to emergency preparedness -these workshops can help bring peace of mind for those being deployed and their families.

Emergency Communications Services

The Red Cross connects families to their service member serving abroad by providing communication support.  When a disaster strikes at home, the Red Cross will help keep the service member informed.

Information and Referral Services

The Red Cross can connect service members and their families with community partners to assist with urgent needs.  The Red Cross is committed to helping service members abroad, but also when they return home.

Financial Assistance

The Red Cross works with military aid associations to get emergency financial support to service members and their families, when that support is needed most.

Reconnection Workshops

Positively reconnecting back into civilian life is important after deployment. Service members can gain support reintegrating through courses, workshops and small groups.
