Low-income families are given access to the resources they desperately need through this vital program including emergency food boxes, clothing, hygiene products, referral assistance, community-based events, warm coats, back-to-school supplies, mentoring, Bible studies and life skills training. With the help of donors and volunteers we have expanded our services to assist the poor in Brunswick County, New Hanover and Horry County, SC.  This is due to many of the surrounding shelters house our residents.  Therefore we feel the need to assist them!

Greetings Friends of Streetreach, we are quickly approaching the fifth year of sheltering the homeless in Brunswick County.As many know we are a 100% volunteer organization that depends solely off the generosity of the community and faith-based organizations. We have absolutely NO paid staff and do not receive grants, or United Way funding.   With NO permanent shelter in place and NO public transportation system in place, It has been a whirlwind time of adjustments and challenges getting churches to participate in the Interfaith sheltering program, for various reasons.  However, we have pressed onward and have had so many great stories of changed lives, baptisms and numerous employment and housing successes. Praises to God.  We appreciate the help of all our volunteers and of those that support us in various ways.  We have provided thousands of nights of sheltering over the past years  for the homeless via of  church facilities, campers, motels, etc...many have even stayed on our own property. It has taken a village to meet these needs.  This has been a great savings to many organizations, we have stopped a lot of duplication of services and wasted manpower. The calls and request for help increase daily, however we are currently extended and sorry to say we can't meet all the needs at this time.   We do want to extend a big thank you to all that have sowed into this program, without you we could not help the most vulnerable among us. We will continue to meet needs as resources are provided. We so desire your prayers for guidance during these trying times.
