Red Cross Launches Hero Care Network

Last week, The American Red Cross launched a new online option to give military families more flexibility and expanded access to help during times of crisis. This online service is being made available following input received from military families.

  • securely initiate a request for Red Cross emergency messages from computers, tablets or smartphones.
  • use the online option from anywhere in the world 7 days/week, 24 hours/ day, 365 days/ year (same as with the toll-free number).
  • to monitor the message status as it goes through the verification and delivery process.
