We Are Looking for Volunteers to join our Service to the Armed Forces Program

At times of emergency, Service to Armed Forces (SAF) provides the communication link between armed forces personnel wherever they may be and their family members at home. Our Red Cross worldwide emergency communications network operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. By calling 877-272-7337 we can help you or your family with emergency messages regarding the death or serious illness of a family member, the birth of a child, or other family emergencies.

The American Red Cross Service to Armed Forces can provide a service member and their commander with fast, reliable information to help make decisions regarding emergency leave. The SAF collaborates with the military aid societies in providing financial assistance when an urgent personal or family crisis arises.

Hundreds of Red Cross chapters brief departing service members and their families regarding available support services and explain how the Red Cross may assist them during the deployment. Both active duty and community based military can count on the Red Cross to provide emergency communications that link them with their families back home, access to financial assistance, counseling and assistance to veterans.
