Rainbow House Feeding

Since 2009, members of the Frederiksted Twin City Lions Club have provided scrumptious home cooked meals to residents of Rainbow House which is affiliated with Ten Thousands Helpers of St. Croix a non-profit organization.  Rainbow House is home to approximately 11 individuals (men) who for various reasons are homeless, suffer from mental illness or substance abuse. 

Rainbow House serves as a stable nine to twelve month nurturing environment which holds the individual accountable for their behavior.  The residents are steered towards a route which will help them achieve their ultimate goals.  Goals which includes: permanent housing and becoming a healthy productive member of our community.

Some residents receive a small monthly stipend however, there is a need for home cooked meals on weekends when My Brother's Table, a local soup kitchen is not open to provide a meal for the day.


Adopted Park Environmental Project

During Lionistic Year 2009-2010 the Frederiksted Twin City Lions Club requested through the Virgin Islands Department of Property and Procurement permission to adopt a small beach front park and Nos. 43 & 44 Strand Street in the town of Frederiksted, St. Croix. 

Permission to adopt the park was granted September 21, 2010 after a long process and the Frederiksted Twin City Lions Club was elated.  On a monthly basis members gather to collect trash, foliage and twigs from our adopted park.  In the near future the club plans to plant trees for shade and beautification, refurbish the benches and picnic tables, install lighting and erect the Lions Club signage for the community's usage and enjoyment.
