The American Red Cross was started in 1881 by Clara Barton and fashioned after a military-assistance movement begun two decades earlier in Switzerland. Today, the American Red Cross provides five key services-- Biomedical, Health and Safety, Disaster, Armed Forces Emergency, and International Services-- and is still driven by the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The American Red Cross of the Heartland is one of 600 locally-supported chapters across the nation that is focused on providing relief to victims of disasters as well as helping people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. The American Red Cross receives no federal funding and is maintained by the participation of its loyal volunteers.
