In 2019, the Organization selected Frederiksted Health Care, Inc. (FHC). The members decided to host a Silent Auction at The Fred on February 8, 2020. Tours of the Ingeborg Nesbitt, FHC’s main site were hosted to attendees of the Auction. The Auction was a beautiful evening. The ambiance was wonderful and the event was well attended and supported. The Auction raised $25,000 to support FHC’s services to the Homeless and High Risk Pregnancies. FHC provides services to the Homeless, medical, dental, behavioral health and housing assistance. FHC also provides prenatal services; several of the patients are high risk and have limited financial resources for some of the medical care needed.
On February 28, 2020, Members of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller visited FHC and presented a check for the Funds Raised to Board Members, Management and some Staff of Frederiksted Health Care, Inc. The Board of Directors, Management Staff and Patients of FHC are extremely appreciative of the Order of St. John for selecting and raising $25,000 to support such needed services at FHC.

The FHC Board and Management is especially appreciative of our staff who shared their talents by donating some of their art work for the auction.
