Emergency and Disaster Services
The Canadian Red Cross may provide emergency and disaster services in partnership with first responders, emergency managers, public officials, and in collaboration with other voluntary sector organizations. These services may include emergency lodging, reception and information, emergency food, emergency clothing, personal services and family reunification. If you have been affected by a personal disaster, such as a house fire, contact us at 1-800-850-5090.
The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Visiting Program aims to help seniors stay in their homes longer by reducing isolation and increasing their health and safety. Friendly Visiting is one-on-one, personal visits by a trained Red Cross volunteer for an hour, at least once every two weeks, for seniors who find it difficult to leave their homes. Companionship is the key – depending on their interests, the pair may chat, play a game, do a craft or discuss the news.
NOTE: Service currently on hold due to Covid-19
