St. John

Disaster Response Training

Headwaters provided training to community members engaged in disaster response planning in December 2016, nine months before St. Johns US Virgin Islands experienced Hurricane Maria in September 2017. This training was done less than a year before the hurricane devastated the US Virgin Islands. Headwaters provided ongoing support during the aftermath of the hurricane and provided follow up support as well.

Headwaters received a grant in 2018 to provide telecounseling to survivors of the 2017 hurricanes. Telecounseling will be provided remotely with the recipients at a location in St. John’s by our volunteer in Minnesota. This service will be provided in 2019 with our staff of volunteers that are trained in providing mental health support.
