#FSUSCares - Grand Bahamas Children's Home Fund

#FSUSCares is an initiative of Florida State Univerity Schools to lend a helping hand to our local, national and international communities.  

In response to the many needs in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian, FSUSCares will focus support on The Grand Bahama Children’s Home. 32 children (12 girls and 20 boys, ranging in age from 3 months to 14 years) had to be bundled up and evacuated to a shelter late at night, in the middle of the storm, as flood waters rose around them at an alarming rate. Thankfully everyone made it to safety.

The Home did not fare well in the storm, and the children are unable to move back in.  Although structurally sound, the buildings will have to be gutted.  The contents are a complete loss.  They lost everything, from the stoves, fridges, freezers, beds, and cribs, to clothing, shoes, toys, and toiletries.  There is literally nothing left.  Before Dorian, financial support of the Home took constant fundraising and community assistance.  Post Dorian, they have not only those basic challenges, but now the children don’t even have a place to call home, until all of those fundamental items can be replaced.  Added to this challenge is the fact that the loving, caring staff are suffering as well; many lost their own homes in this devastating hurricane. 

The St. Bernard Project (SBP) is working to restore The Grand Bahama Children’s Home as quickly as possible, so that the kids can come back home.   But they need our help to come to the rescue through donations of all kinds.

Giving with the #FSUSCares initiative will assist with the reassembling of The Grand Bahama Children’s Home.  Please do what you can to help get the children back in their beds!
