National Hunger & Homeless Awareness Month

By Shelisa Allen, Administrative Assistant

On Thursday, November 18, Virgin Islands Partners in Recovery (VIPIR) decided to give back to our community by creating a care package for those individuals consisting of a home-cooked meal, cold drinks, and personal hygiene items. As a team, we prepared a meal to 80 homeless persons in our community.

There has been a recent rise in homeless pandemic in our local community. The Virgin Islands local continuum of Care on Homelessness (COC) provided data that revealed approximately 200 people in our territory that have defined themselves as homeless.

We are eager to collaborate with other organizations in the future to continue to provide support to our community and reach more individuals. Making our voice known. We are here! We are proud to continuously extend a helping hand to those in need. The Village seeks to make a difference in the U.S. Virgin Islands and continues to embody what it means to uplift the human spirit.
