To volunteer with any organization that is working in a crisis situation you can get trained before a crisis occurs.
To volunteer locally in many capacities check out:

Haiti is currently a logistical nightmare.
The best we can do now is send donations to organizations that will make sure 100% of the donations are used for the expressed purpose.
Check these out.

2 Ways to give to help people in Haiti:
 
1) Jewish Federation -
If you are interested in donating money to help the people in Haiti for disaster relief, The Jewish Federation is a reputable organization to donate to. They indicate on their website, as they did when they helped victims of Hurricane Katrina, that "100% of collected donations will go directly to support non-sectarian needs on the ground". The link is: http://www.jewishla.org/evites/haiti.htm
 
2) RED CROSS ���
The best way to help is to make financial donations to www.redcross.org or call 1-800-REDCROSS. The most amazing part is to text the word "HAITI" to 90999 which will cause a $10 charge on your cellphone bill and send $10 to the Red Cross for Haiti relief efforts. To date, in the past three days, these $10 donations have totalled $10 million!!!!! Thank you for any help you can give to make a difference to the lives of these people in need. If someone wants to give clothing or other supplies, neither the Red Cross nor any other group is collecting small amounts of supplies. It is not possible to organize or distribute individual donations of things, so money is the most helpful. Thanks for helping.
