SHELTER HELP NEEDED Be ready to help your local community! Due to predictions for an active hurricane season and the complexities of COVID-19, the Red Cross will need thousands of volunteers to care for people when disasters strike. Train now to be a Ready Red Cross Shelter Volunteer so you can answer the call when your community needs it most!

There is a special need for volunteers to support sheltering efforts. The Red Cross is placing those needing a safe place to stay in emergency hotel lodging when possible. If hotel stays aren’t possible, then the Red Cross will open traditional shelters. To help keep people safe, we have put in place additional precautions and developed special training for our workforce.

We need volunteers to help staff shelter reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information collection and other vital tasks to help those we serve. We have both associate and supervisory level opportunities available.

Responsibilities:

  • Following worker safety procedures for working in a COVID environment
  • Embodying the fundamental principles of the American Red Cross in their work with clients, disaster responders and partners
  • Providing excellent client service and support the daily maintenance of the shelter operation at the direction of the assigned Shelter Supervisor
  • Using the Red Cross Shift Tool during the disaster event to report availability and schedule shelter shifts
  • Completing the required virtual self-paced training (3 hours of training total)


If you are interested in helping our community should a disaster occur, please go to redcross.org/volunteertoday or contact our area offices at (404) 575-3749 or email GARecruit@redcross.org.
