Click or tap the Red Cross icons for shelter information. Some of the shelters shown on the map may be operated by partner agencies and are not Red Cross shelters. American Red Cross services, including food and shelter, are always provided at no cost — a gift of the American people. Everyone is welcome at a Red Cross shelter. The Red Cross does not discriminate based on nationality, race, religious beliefs, class, disability, political opinions, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
If you need to leave your home due to a disaster or emergency, you are welcome to come to a Red Cross shelter. Your service animal is also welcome. Please speak with a shelter worker if your service animal is in need of food or supplies. Ensuring people have a safe place to stay during a disaster is a critical part of the Red Cross mission, but how we support sheltering efforts may be different in each community depending on local emergency plans and the scale of the disaster.
In most cases, every shelter we open will appear on the map above. However, in some communities, hotels or other approaches may still be more appropriate if the risk of COVID is particularly high.

When you arrive, please let us know if you have any specific needs or requests for equipment, supplies, food, or cultural or religious requirements.
