Annual Report 2007 - American Red Cross

Annual Report 2006-2007


Our Mission: The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and

guided by its Congressional Charter and the Fundamental Principles of the International

Red Cross Movement, will provide relief to victims of disaster and help people prevent,

prepare for, and respond to emergencies.

The Red Cross is a powerful, daily

presence in the Greater Houston area.

A fire victim gets help to rebuild his

life. A teacher learns Red Cross CPR.

A military wife notifies her husband in

Iraq of the birth of their child, using

Red Cross Emergency Communication.

A child learns to swim. An elderly

grandmother boards a Red Cross bus

to her twice-weekly dialysis treatments.

A Red Cross Volunteer learns to set up

a shelter to help his neighbors during

an emergency.The Red Cross touches

every stage of our lives and makes our

community stronger.

– Steve Cassiani,

Chairman of the Board

The volunteers and staff of the Greater

Houston Area Chapter are deeply

committed to the residents in our

16-county area. We’re prepared for

large disasters, but each day our

life-saving services and programs

provide help, hope and a better future

for so many people. It is a privilege to

have the responsibility and opportunity

to make such a positive impact on our

community.

Chief Executive Officer

Summary of Chapter Activities

In times of emergency, the Red Cross is

a 365 day-a-year operation. So a calendar

is an appropriate Annual Report. As

you turn each month’s page, think of the

fire victims and military families who

needed help that month and got it from

the Red Cross. The numbers on this

page aren’t just statistics, they’re people

whose lives were changed by the

Greater Houston Area Chapter.

The Greater Houston Area Red Cross

provides services to a 16-county area

that is home to about six million people.

This huge area includes Houston, the

country’s 4 th largest city, a long coastline

in Galveston and Brazoria Counties,

suburban areas, small towns and very

rural areas.

To provide services that reflect the

needs of such diverse communities, the

Chapter has its main headquarters off

the Southwest Freeway and 14 local

offices throughout our 16 counties.

While most people think of the Red

Cross helping during large disasters

such as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the

Chapter’s Disaster Services staff and

volunteers are busy every day responding

to house and apartment fires, an

average of two a day. More than 3,500

fire victims received financial assistance

last year.

All Disaster Assistance is free, made possible

by the generosity of our donors.

For good news and bad, military families rely

on Red Cross Emergency Communication to

contact loved ones overseas. More than

13,000 people last year used this service.

When military families are in crisis, the Red

Cross also facilitates emergency financial assistance

and counseling.

The Chapter’s Health and Safety courses

improve every stage of our lives. Children

take Red Cross swim lessons, lifeguards get

trained and Red Cross CPR teaches people

The elderly face multiple challenges,

particularly mobility. Several local Red

Cross offices provide low-cost, Non-

Emergency Medical Transportation to

the elderly, disabled or chronically ill.

Red Cross buses take people to

doctor’s appointments or recurring

medical treatments.

There are also numbers you won’t see

listed, but they’re critical to our Chapter

and community. Thousands of donors

who make it possible for us to provide

free disaster assistance. More than 150

local churches partner with the Houston

Chapter to become Red Cross Shelters

in times of emergency.

More than 5,000 committed, trained Red

Cross volunteers help us deliver our programs

and services. They respond in

the middle of the night to an apartment

fire to help people who have lost everything.

They deliver clean-up kits to flood

victims. They teach CPR and swim lessons.

They are the Red Cross because

the Red Cross is neighbors helping

neighbors.

Learn to Save a Life

There is comfort in knowing how to

safe a life. When you’re in a Red

Cross CPR class, you quietly hope

the only compressions you’ll ever

perform are the ones you’re practicing

on the manikin.

But deep down you know, if a loved

one or even a stranger needs CPR,

you’ll be ready.

Start your New Year right. Get

trained. We are fortunate to live in

the Houston area, one of the cities

where heart attack victims have a

better chance of surviving because

so many people know CPR.

Depending on the Red Cross class

you choose, you can learn to use an

Automated External Defibrillator,

provide First Aid, and help someone

who is choking.

Get trained now and all year you will

have the warm, comforting feeling of

knowing you can save a life.

CPR classes are offered at many

Red Cross locations throughout our

16-county area.

Providing Disaster Relief

’Disaster’ is defined in the dictionary

as a ‘great or sudden misfortune.’

That’s certainly how it feels to a family

who loses their home in a fire,

flood or tornado.

A disaster can be a single-family

home fire or an event so huge and

devastating it rips apart many lives

and cripples a community for months

or years to come.

But large or small, all disasters are

life-changing events for the people

affected.

Your home? Gone.

Clothing? Gone.

Food? Gone.

Your child’s first drawing? Gone.

For all disasters, the Greater Houston

Area Red Cross arrives on the scene

offering hope and help. Red Cross

volunteers and staff assist victims

with immediate needs: shelter, food,

clothing and other essentials.

Red Cross workers deliver meals

to disaster ravaged neighborhoods,

open shelters when needed and

provide food and water for exhausted

emergency workers.

Disasters are ruthless and indiscriminate…stealing

from victims their

sense of security.

The Red Cross provides help to begin

the process of healing.

Be Red Cross Ready

March is Red Cross Month. At the

Greater Houston Area Chapter, we

look at it as a month of opportunity.

Opportunity for the businesses and

individuals who support us so generously

throughout the year, to proudly

fly their Red Cross flag.

Opportunity to remind the community

of the programs and services we

provide in our 16-county area and for

people to take advantage of them.

Opportunity to encourage people to

Be Red Cross Ready for the

upcoming storm and Hurricane Season.

Opportunity for the Chapter to bring

its message of preparedness to

downtown workers through our March

Preparedness on the Square event,

shown left.

Opportunity for the members of

our community to visit our website,

houstonredcross.org, to sign up

for life-saving classes, download

preparedness information, donate or

volunteer.

March is opportunity…to improve

your life, improve the lives of others

and become part of our Red Cross

family.

Volunteers Make The Difference

I don't know what your destiny will

be, but one thing I know: the only

ones among you who will be really

happy are those who have sought

and found how to serve.

-- Albert Schweitzer, Humanitarian

Red Cross Volunteers know how to

serve. They are the heart and soul

of our Chapter and community.

Our trained, dedicated volunteers

make it possible for our Chapter to

provide programs and services to

residents in our 16 counties.

From teens to seniors, there are

Red Cross volunteer opportunities

to suit all interests, abilities and

availability.

Adventure seekers often enjoy being

disaster volunteers. High-tech types

are assigned to our Emergency

Communications Response Vehicle,

which is a satellite truck.

Volunteers who love the water teach

Red Cross swim lessons. We also

use volunteers with computer, financial

or clerical skills.

Our volunteers come from all walks

of life, but they share a common

desire: to help.

There is a Red Cross volunteer

opportunity to enrich your life.

Call or email us and we’ll help you

find it.

Teaching Water Safety

When you’re a kid, nothing is more

fun than splashing and playing in the

water with friends.

Remember the feeling? Warm sun

and cool water. You play with abandon.

No cares, no worries, no fears.

No fears…..

That’s why Red Cross Water Safety

Courses are so important.

Tragically, children drown every

year in the Greater Houston area,

sometimes in their own backyard

pool. Red Cross Swim Lessons help

keep our children safe.

Our Chapter partners with many

municipalities and communities

to teach children and adults to swim.

But even if they can swim, young

children must always be supervised

by an adult when they’re in the

water.

Red Cross Lifeguard Training

ensures that the people watching

over your children at the pool or

beach, are well prepared to prevent

and respond to emergencies.

To keep all your water adventures

safe and fun, call or visit our website

to sign up for Red Cross Water

Safety Courses.

Prepare for Hurricane Season

June 1 st is the beginning of Hurricane

Season, which is meaningful

when you live on the Gulf Coast.

While this is the beginning, Hurricane

Season lasts half the year,

with September traditionally being

the most active month.

But it’s not a minute too soon to Be

Red Cross Ready. Put together, or

update, your Disaster Supplies Kit

and create an Emergency Plan.

You probably have most of the

supplies you need at home. Go to

our website and check the Disaster

Supplies list. Find the items you

have, buy the ones you need and

put it all in a plastic bin.

Cost? Not much.

Gather your family and develop our

Emergency Plan. Decide where to

go if a disaster forces you from

your home, neighborhood or community.

Our website

provides tips to help.

Cost? Nothing.

The feeling that comes from knowing

you and your family are prepared

for Hurricane Season and

other emergencies?

Priceless!

Transporting Those in Need

Getting older or being chronically ill

brings many challenges. Good medical

care is crucial.

Fortunately, the Houston area has a

wealth of excellent medical facilities

and providers. But getting to them

can be difficult and expensive if you

don’t drive.

Several of our Red Cross offices in

the greater Houston area offer lowcost

or no-cost, non-emergency medical

transportation for the elderly disabled

or chronically ill.

Red Cross Transportation Buses take

people to routine doctors’ appointments,

dialysis, chemotherapy and to

Alzheimer facilities.

Unlike public transportation, Red

Cross drivers provide door-to-door

service for their passengers.

They meet them at their front door,

walk them to the bus and then to their

medical facility.

This extra care and thoughtful service

are why many of our longtime passengers

consider their Red Cross driver

their friend.

Developing Young Leaders

If our future is shaped by our youth,

the future of the Greater Houston

Area Red Cross is very bright.

The Chapter’s Youth Services Program

engages more than a thousand

teenagers from local high

schools and Islamic and Chinese

youth groups.

They come from many communities

and include more than 20 nationalities,

reflecting the rich diversity

of the Houston area. These young

volunteers are students and leaders.

But they want more. They want to

make a difference in their communities

and the world. So they share

their time, creativity and vision.

They support local Red Cross

events such as last December’s

‘thank you’ to military families, held

at Ellington Field, pictured left. They

played games with the children and

helped them with art projects.

But they also hear the cries for help

a world away. These young humanitarians

raise money and awareness

for the Red Cross Measles Initiative

in Africa.

They represent the promise of the

future.

Donors Believe in our Mission

The Milkweed plant in the backyard

of Dick and Carolyn Shell’s Houston

home symbolizes their generous

approach to life.

They grow the plant because it sustains

the Monarch Butterfly in each

stage of its life. Dick and Carolyn

support life in our community through

their gifts of time and money to the

Greater Houston Area Red Cross.

Dick and Carolyn, pictured left, say

they donate because they volunteer.

They see the need first hand and

know how carefully their money is

spent.

Giving is very personal and each

donor has his or her own reasons.

A World War II veteran wrote a note

with his donation, saying that Red

Cross parcels saved him when he

was a Prisoner of War.

A brother and sister made a donation

to our Chapter after their mother died,

because she had volunteered for the

Red Cross.

Businesses often donate because we

provide services they consider critical

to our community.

Whatever the reason, donating to the

Greater Houston Area Red Cross

feels good. Your neighbors and the

community benefit and you know your

money will be used wisely.

Practice Fire Safety

It’s hard to imagine anything more

terrifying than the sound of fire racing

through your home. The Chapter’s

Disaster volunteers and staff

respond to an average of two fires

a day.

Many of those are apartment fires,

which can leave dozens of families

homeless at one time.

This Channelview apartment fire,

pictured left, spread quickly and sent

residents running for their lives.

They left with only the clothes on

their backs and many without their

shoes.

Three apartment buildings burned to

the ground that day, leaving more

than 75 families without their homes

and belongings.

The Red Cross opened a nearby

shelter within two hours and began

providing financial assistance.

October is fire safety month. And

while you can’t always prevent a

fire, you can protect yourself. Working

smoke alarms, easy-to-reach fire

extinguishers and practicing an escape

plan will help keep you and

your family safe.

For more fire safety tips, visit our

website.

Helping Military Families

The Red Cross helps lessen the

pain of separation for military

families.

Red Cross Emergency Communication

is a vital link between military

families and their loved ones overseas.

Red Cross messages convey

the birth of a child or the illness or

death of a family member.

If a service member is needed at

home due to a family member’s

critical illness or death, Red Cross

verifies the information the Military

uses to determine if a leave will be

granted.

“The information I received from the

Red Cross was invaluable in making

those tough decisions,” said Army

Reservist Major Stephen Ladd.

Major Ladd, pictured left, is a Process

Quality Engineer for Houston’s

GE Oil and Gas at VetcoGray. He

recently served more than a year in

Afghanistan as Commander of a 35-

soldier Apache Helicopter Company.

“A huge success story was when

one of my pilot’s wives was critically

injured in a terrible car accident.

Red Cross verified the medical information,

notified me and within 24

hours of the accident, my pilot was

out of Afghanistan and heading

home to Texas . . . His wife survived

and he remained home to take care

of her.”

Season of Giving

Giving is the theme of the Holiday

Season. There’s gift giving. Then

there’s giving…as in giving back.

The Greater Houston Area Red

Cross can help with both.

For gift giving, we help you avoid

crowded stores, long lines and gifts

they don’t need.

A First Aid Kit for your teenager’s

car. A Pet First Aid Book and Kit for

your sister …who has three cats,

two dogs and a bird! A Red Cross,

hand-crank radio for your dad, who

lives to camp.

The variety and price ranges make

Red Cross gifts the perfect choice

for family, friends or employees.

Shop our Red Cross Store at the

Chapter Headquarters, 2700 Southwest

Freeway, or online at

houstonredcross.org.

For the other kind of giving, that

satisfies the soul by helping people

you’ll never meet, a financial gift to

our Chapter is a great choice.

Your gift will help a fire victim start

over, a child learn to swim or send

a Red Cross Message to a soldier

in Iraq, telling him he has a new

baby son.

Your Red Cross gift this holiday season

will touch lives throughout the

new year.
