Background

Love City Strong formed in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. It began as a grassroots group of St. John residents responding to the immediate needs of the community. Federal, territory, and private philanthropic partners quickly utilized our team as an on-the-ground asset. In December 2017, we became a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, recognized in the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

In 2018, LCS successfully worked on multiple initiatives within our stated mission and goals, partnering with agencies in both the public and private sectors. We believe these partnerships are the future of disaster response and recovery. As we continue to progress through the recovery and into a new era of preparedness, resilience and sustainability, we seek to strengthen the island from the roots up by leveraging the innate talents of the St. John community.
