Mission Statement

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The American Red Cross Central California Region serves over 4.2 million residents throughout 11 counties: Fresno, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare and Ventura.


Boots on the Ground -- Your role could be to respond to home fires and other emergencies in your community, conduct in-home smoke alarm installation and fire safety education visits, or working in a wildfire shelter providing safe accommodations.

Instructor/Presenter positions to deliver education programs focused on preparedness, disasters and how to "Be Red Cross Ready" to adults and youth.

Client Facing Help Our Clients - Your role could be working with a family after a home fire, helping people locate loved ones after a war or natural disaster, or assisting military families with emergency communications and other services. This work can be emotionally draining but also deeply satisfying as you provide aid and comfort in someone’s time of need.

Lead the Way - "Leadership" volunteers guide our efforts, inspire our volunteers and hold us accountable to the highest standards. Your role could be to lead a small team of fellow volunteers, act as an advisor to a Red Cross Club for youth, or joining our Board of Directors.

Tell the Red Cross Story - Communications & Outreach volunteers educate the public about Red Cross services and stories in your community. Your role could be to represent the Red Cross at community events, work with your local media, or tell Red Cross stories through marketing, social media, or photography.

Would you recommend American Red Cross - Central California?

I have to share this and I will keep it short and sweet! I started with the American Red Cross after being a stay at home Mom for 17 years. Well I was ready for some adult interaction. So I Knew I loved Red Cross and I joined. The people you will meet here here are unlike any other. Be prepared to fall in love with a Mission of an organization you own in your heart. I now am proud to say I work for the American Red Cross. Truly PROUD!

I didn't know all that Red Cross did in the community before I joined the Red Cross. I recently volunteered at their Home Fire Campaign event where volunteers install free smoke alarms for anyone that needs it to help prevent home fires! This was a fun way to directly help the community by giving them livesaving resources.
