Description:

As a partner of a network of 186 Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies worldwide, the American Red Cross of Southwest Louisiana was founded in 1918 as a chartered unit of the American National Red Cross. The chapter serves the 290,000 residents of Calcasieu, Jefferson Davis, Cameron, Beauregard and Allen parishes.

In the years since its founding, the chapter has evolved with the needs of our community, but our core mission remains focused on alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Assistance with food, clothing and shelter for victims of disasters - including home fires- Red Cross DAT members are on the scene in Southwest Louisiana to help a family whose home has been damaged or destroyed by fire. They assess the situation, provide for emergency needs and coordinate with other agencies to help the family on the road to recovery.
