Background

Love City Strong began as an unofficial, grassroots effort of St. John residents who came together in the direct aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Within 24 hours of the first storm, our immediate goal became clear: Mobilize volunteers within the community to address the most pressing issues associated with the immediate recovery efforts. Our group was quickly recognized by federal and local first responders, and we were brought in on multiple immediate disaster needs projects ranging from emergency evacuations to supply chain logistics.

In November 2017, we officially became Love City Strong, Inc., a 501(c)(3) status nonprofit organization recognized in the United States and the US Virgin Islands. All of our projects focus on addressing needs not currently met by other organizations, and are supported by data collected directly from one on one interactions with the residents of St. John.

Since our formation, LCS has worked with agencies in both the public and private sector on various initiatives within our stated mission and goals. It is our belief that these public/private partnerships are the future of disaster response and recovery. Working together with organizations from a variety of backgrounds is crucial to strengthening our impact.
