Who can stay in a Red Cross shelter?
Everyone is welcome at a Red Cross shelter. The Red Cross does not discriminate based on nationality, race, religious beliefs, class, disability, political opinions, sexual orientation, or gender identity. If you need to leave your home due to a disaster or emergency, you are welcome to come to a Red Cross shelter.
- Your service animal is also welcome. Please speak with a shelter worker if your service animal is in need of food or supplies.
No need for a reservation, just show up
If you need our help, come to the shelter. If you want to speak with someone in advance, it’s best to contact your local Red Cross chapter. But please understand: in times of crisis, everyone at the chapter office may be busy providing shelter services.
Let us know if you have special needs
When you arrive, please let us know if you have any specific needs or requests for equipment, supplies, food, or cultural or religious requirements. Every effort will be made to accommodate your needs.
What to Bring (And What Not to Bring)
Emergencies can happen suddenly and you may not have time to pack. Your safety is most important – grab your loved ones and get out of harm’s way! However if you do have time to pack, please consider these tips.
- Your child’s stuffed animal,
- Blanket or other “lovey”
- Your emergency kit
- Alcoholic beverages
- Illegal drugs
During a disaster or emergency, you can rely on Red Cross shelters for:
- A safe place to sleep
- Meals, snacks and water
- Health services (for disaster-related conditions), such as first aid, refilling lost prescriptions or replacing lost eyeglasses
- Emotional support and mental health services
- Spiritual care
- Help reconnecting with loved ones
- Information about disaster-related resources in the community
- You can also access these services even if you don’t need a place to sleep: anyone with a disaster-related need can visit the shelter to be directed to the appropriate resources.
During some emergencies, we may also be able to provide other important services, such as:
- Access to case workers to help you with disaster recovery
- Direct access to services provided by our partners
