In the decades since the launch of this initiative, CFVI has spearheaded a number or projects, programs, and efforts aimed at enhancing the lives of children and families in the Territory.

Its purpose is to promote dialogue on children’s issues and to stimulate community response to improve the health, safety and economic status of VI children, from birth to age 18. 

From 2000-2019, the KIDS COUNT USVI Data Book was compiled and published each year by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI).
