“The Red Cross is always there for those who need us.”
Diane Ryan, NY Red Cross Director, Mental Health & Service Programs, was one of two mental health workers from the Greater NY Chapter who traveled to Buffalo. Over the course of 10 days in Buffalo, Diane co-led the Red Cross mental health response. In this role, she coordinated the work of the mental health and spiritual care volunteers who provided service to friends and families of the passengers and aircraft personnel, those who evacuated from their homes at the impact site and responders in the field.
“The Red Cross is always there for those who need us,” said Diane. “I am proud to be part of an organization that mobilizes immediately to make sure the family and friends of those affected by tragedy are cared for.”
