About Us

The official blog for the American Red Cross North Texas Region.

The American Red Cross of North Texas serves a population of over 9 million people in 121 counties and is made up of 7 local chapters including: Dallas Fort Worth, Texoma Area, Texas Panhandle, Texas South Plains, East Texas, Northeast Texas & Texas Big Country.

Our compassionate volunteers care for and support our friends and neighbors who face the worst moments of their lives due to disasters. The Red Cross in North Texas works with the American Red Cross National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. and the international Red Cross and Red Crescent network to serve our neighbors down the street, across the country and around the world.

Our mission at the Red Cross empowers people to become survivors. Through trainings and reinforcing preparedness steps, knowledge becomes action and action saves lives.

Mission Statement

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