The American Red Cross a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its congressional charter and the fundamental principal of the International Red Cross Movement, will provide relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

AmeriCorps members help achieve the American Red Cross mission by focusing on under resourced communities providing much needed services that community members may not be able to afford. The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region has managed and hosted AmeriCorps programs for close to 24 years since the founding of our flagship program, the California Safe Corps, in 1994.

  • About Us
    AmeriCorps members serving with the Red Cross are dedicated to providing disaster preparedness education to underserved neighborhoods, schools, and communities, and also responding to the needs of individuals and families when an emergency does occur. Additionally members engage the community with Red Cross health and safety programs including CPR, First Aid, emergency preparedness training, programming for individuals with disabilities and functional needs, youth programs and more.

    California Safe Corps – CSC is the oldest of the Red Cross AmeriCorps programs, with over 25 years of service in regions throughout the state. This program focuses on preparing communities for disasters by providing low-cost CPR and First Aid training to vulnerable communities, disaster response, and supporting the Red Cross Disaster Cycle Services. Members may also coordinate Red Cross Youth volunteers and aid with community outreach.

    CA AmeriCorps Disaster Team – CADT is the Red Cross’s newest AmeriCorps program, created in partnership through CaliforniaVolunteers, to support community readiness and disaster response. The Disaster Team has the unique opportunity to work on all sides of the recovery process, by supporting both Red Cross and government run (FEMA, Cal OES, etc.) response and recovery efforts. Members also help build the Red Cross’s ability to support the community through volunteer recruitment, trainings, and engagement.
