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

City of Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi residents are reminded to dump any standing water around your property that could become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. It only takes a small amount of water to start the breeding process. Mosquito dunks are available at local home improvement stores and are a great way to treat standing water.
Be sure to wear long sleeves while outdoors. Use a mosquito repellent with DEET, follow the directions and seek information about how to use mosquito repellant on a young child. Dogs need to limit time outdoors since they are susceptible to heartworms caused by mosquitoes. Please only use veterinarian approved insect repellents on your pets.
My Hurricane Story is a 32-page guided workbook that can help elementary school children across the hurricane-battered Gulf coast make sense of their experiences with a Hurricane.
The workbook, which has been written, edited and illustrated by noted child wellness experts, contains dozens of activities that help traumatized children constructively work through their feelings of grief and loss. It specifically addresses and explores the effects that hurricanes have had on the child, their families, pets and homes.
The workbook also features several pages that assist parents and other adults in taking care of hurricane-affected children’s unique needs.
