How to Help
Lutheran Social Services of the Virgin Islands would not be able to keep its doors open without the generous support of our community in the Territory and abroad. There are ample opportunities for getting involved with the LSSVI family. Gifts of any amount helps us continue our mission to the community.
BECOME A SPONSOR WITH A HEART
You can help LSSVI provide love and care for our islands’ most vulnerable children, low income adults with disabilities and seniors. By committing $100 every month or $1,200 a year, you can contribute to:
♥ Queen Louise Home for Children serving children who have been abused and abandoned and Sister Emma Cottage caring for children who are severely disabled and medically fragile.
♥ All of our eleven residential care and housing communities that care for children, low income seniors, and adults with disabilities.

DONATE AN ITEM
Many of our programs have an ongoing list of items/resources/needs that would bring a little sunshine to our residents and program participants. Check out the “wish lists” for our various programs!
DONATE YOUR TIME
We welcome helping hands from our community friends! Due to the nature of our work, we require a deep level of discretion and trust from our volunteers. Our residents are our family and we are looking for caring, compassionate people who will serve and treat them with the respect that they deserve.
Contact our Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested in volunteering at one of our residential homes or if you are a group leader looking to set up a project for your community/religious group. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (340) 772-4099 ext.23 for more information.
We also host fundraising events throughout the year, and we’re always on the look out for amazing event coordinators and craftsmen who are willing to give their time. For fundraising/development volunteer opportunities, contact our Public Relations and Development Department, (340) 772-4099 ext. 1 or at email@example.com.
