ACA Members Asked to Respond to Hurricane Harvey

Aug 28, 2017
So far, Hurricane Harvey has devastated 12,000 square miles in Texas and Louisiana and affected millions of people. The American Red Cross is in great need of disaster mental health volunteers to help individuals and families cope with the trauma of this natural disaster.

As a Red Cross partner, the American Counseling Association is asking all Red-Cross-certified disaster mental health volunteers who are able to be deployed to contact their Red Cross chapter as soon as possible.

Due to the urgent need for volunteers as a result of this hurricane, the Red Cross is deploying professional counselors who are licensed or certified and are not yet in the Red Cross system. Deployments are scheduled for nine days and may send volunteers—at least initially—to areas without electricity, cell phone service, or many comforts.

If you are not yet a Red Cross disaster mental health volunteer and wish to deploy to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, please go to the following link for more information: redcross.org/hurricane-harvey-health-professionals.
