The Red Cross Needs Our Help

National NASW

In light of the recent devastation of Hurricane Florence, the American Red Cross is implementing the Health Professionals Direct Deployment Process for volunteers to support Disaster Mental Health (DMH) and Disaster Health Services (DHS), inviting health and mental health professionals to volunteer in communities that have been affected.

The Direct Deployment Process allows professionals who are eligible to support Disaster Mental Health or Disaster Health Services, but who are not currently Red Cross volunteers, to deploy as Red Cross volunteers. This initiative covers the volunteers’ transportation, housing, food and incidental costs while they are deployed, as well as pre-deployment training.

If you or any of your colleagues are able to volunteer to help those affected by Hurricane Florence, please visit the Red Cross Volunteer Site to learn more and register.

NASW and the American Red Cross appreciates your support in this critical time of need.
