Angels Spotlight

The St. John Angel Network was developed to aid nonprofit organizations on island in connecting with volunteers, donors, and other resources so that they may best serve the community in their impact area. The network is currently 57 Angels strong and growing! Just a few #stjAngels are highlighted here.

  • Sandy Colasacco is the founder and executive director of the Island Health and Wellness Center.

    Island Health & Wellness Center

    Celebrating a new clinic location!

    Island Health and Wellness Center is a new nonprofit primary medical care practice that treats patients regardless of financial or health insurance status. The Center, which opened in February 2017, was founded by Sandy Colasacco and is funded through donations and grants.

    A true St. John Angel, Founder Sandy Colasacco has been doing her best to help as many people as possible since Hurricane Irma hit. While the clinic was destroyed, Sandy has been making house calls and making herself available in public locations in order to be accessible to the community's needs in spite of no cellular communications or internet connectivity. Sandy has been treating patients, writing and refilling prescriptions, and offering any public aid possible, in addition to treating the medical needs of the Westin's employees and construction crews. 

     

  • St. John Rescue

    St. John Rescue

    The ONLY specialized rescue agency on St. John!

    St John Rescue provides emergency rescue and medical support services to EMS, VI Police, and VI Fire, National Park Service, United States Coast Guard, VITEMA, FEMA, and heath clinic personnel. As an integral member of St. John's recovery effort, St. John Rescue has partnered with other relief organizations and an army of volunteers to work on supply distribution, improving cellular communications, and a massive door-to-door canvassing project of the entire island to assess the needs of every resident.

    St John Rescue welcomes all types of community support. Responding members maintain a high level of training as EMR's (First Responders), EMT's, and Paramedics. This training is continuous, necessary, and is costly. All medical supplies, extrication and rappelling equipment, and training equipment are purchased out of pocket by the members and St. John Rescue. Your donations go directly to these costs.

  • Ryan Moore, Manager of The Animal Care Center of St. John

    St. John Animal Care Center

    ACC Manager Ryan Moore stayed to care for shelter animals after his family evacuated! 

    The Animal Care Center (ACC) of St. John addresses the problems of cruelty to neglect and abuse of the island animals. The shelter provides kennels for homeless dogs and inside cages for a limited number of homeless cats. Fortunately, all animals in the ACC during Hurricanes Irma and Maria survived the storms and the ACC has been successful in arranging evacuations to reunite pets with stateside owners and to transport homeless animals to stateside rescue organizations. The ACC is heavily dependent on the generosity of donors and volunteers.

     

  • Gifft Hill School accepts a donation from St. John Community Foundation

    The Gifft Hill School

    Deferred tuition and opened enrollment to welcome all island students!

    As the first school on island to reopen following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and as St. John's only preschool through high school program as well as the island's only high school, Gifft Hill School plays a critical role in our community. GHS offered tuition assistance to over 60% of students and has deferred fees in the wake of the 2017 hurricane season to open enrollment to as many St. John children as possible.

    GHS relies heavily on the voluntary financial support of parents, grandparents, alumni and concerned friends who believe in education and love St. John. Every single gift, regardless of size, is greatly needed and deeply appreciated. There are many ways to support GHS: donations of time and talent make a tremendous impact, whether it be helping in the classroom, on the athletic field, at a fundraising event, or a parent workday. Gifft Hill School currently needs volunteers to help clear debris and prepare its upper campus to enroll even more of the island's students.

Latest Stories of Recovery

Here we highlight the stories of struggle and recovery as we move on to building a better community.

St. John’s Angels are Weathering the Storm

It’s been over two months now since back-to-back Category 5 Hurricanes Irma and Maria tore through St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, devastating homes, businesses and the land. Despite being in complete darkness and without water for several weeks, the spirit of the local people has proven to be resilient in times of adversity.

St. John you are so beautiful to us.

As Thanksgiving Day approaches tomorrow, we have a lot to be thankful for on St. John! Businesses and beaches are reopening, the island is once again turning lush and green, and electricity and communications are being rapidly restored across the island. Still, hurricane response and recovery still has many more months and even years to go on St. John as we fully repair and rebuild.

A love letter from Love City

There is an indomitable spirit on the island of St. John.

A beautiful island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, part of the Caribbean chain, St. John was recently devastated by back-to-back hurricanes. Hurricane Irma a category 5 storm, packing wind gusts above 200mph, slammed into St. John on September 6th. Hurricane Maria followed with torrential rains two weeks later adding insult to injury.
