Some see a building. We see a home for critical services for our community.

The Cayman Islands Red Cross Headquarters building has served the Cayman community for over 30 years. Our building operates as a primary hurricane shelter and is the first shelter to open in the event of an emergency. It houses the Thrift Shop Community Outreach Programme which provides goods free of cost to the most vulnerable in our community. It is also the venue for many services, workshops and training as well as free weekly HIV testing. Our Building is in dire need of much needed renovations, and overall improvements to meet current building codes and provide a safe and conducive space to the vulnerable population we serve.
