Help your neighbors. Even those you have not met. Yet.

Disaster Action Teams provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.

Mentoring

The Lazarus House is a program that offers a place to live for individuals who are recently released from jail. When someone is eligible for parole, they must present their parole agent with a home plan to be approved. Due to a lack of income and support, they may languish in prison until they find an acceptable housing option. Lazarus House offers them the housing support that they need. We are looking for individuals or groups who would be interested in "adopting" a resident for their first 90 days when they are first released from prison. The mentor would meet with them on their "move in" day. The mentor will create a package of immediate needs - like bedding, toiletries, and personal care items. The new resident will need to report to their parole agent within the first day or two. The mentor may assist with bus route information, enrolling in public assistance/ EBT, and registering them at the employment office. Lastly, the mentor should meet with, or have a phone conversation with their client once a week. We believe that with these supports, that we can make a difference and give someone a second chance and reduce the likelihood of recidivism. The Lazarus House now also assists youth who are homeless or aging out of foster care, adults living with mental illness, and women released from prison.
