Our Mission:

Recovery.

The mission of the St. Thomas Recovery Team is to coordinate St. Thomas’ long-term recovery response, resource management, resilience planning, and training in response to hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Through direct services and referrals to our partner agencies, we provide a safe, sanitary, and secure space for our clients and provide a collaboration space for other organizations interested in doing the same.

 
 
 

Our Programs

The St. Thomas Recovery Team provides direct services and provides a collaboration table for other response and recovery agencies. Disaster Case Management, Donations Management, Residential Construction, and Resiliency and Sustainability are the organization’s current primary projects

 

Disaster Case Management

Disaster Case Management sits at the heart of every recovery. Our disaster case managers have had extensive training and are dedicated to seeing every client from their initial intake through to the final nail of their repaired home; they guide clients through the recovery process and make sure that every resource available to them is utilized to the fullest extent.

Our Impact

The St. Thomas Recovery Team was formed in November 2017 following hurricanes Irma and Maria and began managing donations and building a framework for a disaster case management program.

Since then, our mission has grown to match the immense need in the territory and the number of families that our programs and partnerships have touched continues to grow each day. From information on preparedness to a comprehensive home repair to give back and support the community, we believe that there is something at the St. Thomas Recovery Team for everyone.
