The Spanish Red Cross in Tenerife has various mechanisms with which it can provide shelter and assistance to immigrants. The Immediate Emergency Response and Humanitarian Aid Teams (ERIE) for immigrants provide fast and effective intervention in emergency situations, such when immigrants arrive in rickety boats on the shores of Tenerife. The organisation's objective in these cases is to alleviate human suffering and provide basic humanitarian aid.

The organisation also offers services to groups of immigrants, including legal, social and psychological guidance, basic emergency aid, awareness-raising, and training such as English classes.
