Human Services Updates Temporary Program Relocations

V.I. Department of Human Services

Since hurricanes Irma and Maria, some programs administered by the V.I. Department of Human Services (DHS) have been temporarily relocated.

“We apologize for any inconvenience to the public as our primary goal is to provide uninterrupted social services to the Virgin Islands community,” said Commissioner Felecia I. Blyden. Since telephone service remains disrupted, the programs have also been assigned temporary mobile numbers, according to a press release from DHS.  The following is a list identifying the programs, their temporary physical addresses, and the respective telephone contacts.
