Thursday afternoon we had the opportunity to visit Queen Louise Home for Children where we had the chance to tour and learn about the history of the facility. Queen Louise is a residential foster care for children in the Virgin Islands who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected and they have not closed their doors since it was founded in 1904. Their facility consists of three cottages: one for girls, one for boys, and one for children and adults with disabilities. They currently have twenty-seven residents ranging from age two to thirty. We were amazed at how beautiful the facility was and how they provided such a family orientated environment to children who need unconditional love and support. We were grateful to have the opportunity to visit and learn about Queen Louise and be able to provide the children with a little summer gift.
