American Red Cross serving the Quad Cities & West Central Illinois


Social Services

About Us

We shelter, feed, and provide emotional support to victims of disasters, supply about 40% of the nation’s blood supply; teach lifesaving skills; and support military members and their families.

With the help of more than 4,000 volunteers, the Illinois Region of the American Red Cross serves more than 12.4 million people in 88 counties in Illinois.

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help our neighbors – Down the street, across the country, and around the world – in emergencies.

As reflected in the Red Cross mission, the Illinois Region seeks to help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to natural and human-caused disasters through the immediate mobilization of people and resources and the provision of community, workplace, and school-based training. We work toward this mission through 5 lines of service: Disaster Relief, Blood Services, Service to the Armed Forces, International services and Preparedness, Health & Safety.

This region delivers Community Disaster Education, First Aid/CPR and other types of life-saving health and safety training to thousands of people to help individuals prevent, prepare, and respond to emergencies. The Red Cross provides 24/7 global emergency communication services and support in military and veteran health care facilities across the country and around the world.
