WOMEN'S COALITION OF ST CROIX INC
May 31, 2013

As a local freelance reporter I have covered events and written features on volunteers and programs at the Women's Coalition of St. Croix USVI.
The success stories in the programs offered are fabulous such as people earning GEDs after hardship and dropping out. The volunteers give it their all when it comes to making an event a success. They have a number of long-standing fundraising events that the community comes out and supports any way they can.
The Coalition has fallen on some hard times but keeps on assisting folks involved in domestic abuse or any other life threatening situations.
A couple years ago the Coalition offices were totally demolished in a fire and a theft took place at the new offices. It happened to be the year they celebrated 30 years of service. And in Jan. 2012, a donor HOVENSA oil refinery closed. Almost 3,000 people were without work. Some have found jobs but there is trickle down and more people are asking the Coalition for all types of assistance. The cost of living and doing business in the Virgin Islands is terribly high.
The work the people at the Coalition do is incredible.
