The mission of Streetreach is to reduce homelessness in our community by providing temporary shelter and support services that result in independent living.

 Tonight, and every night, many individuals, families and even youths are alone and homeless in our neighborhoods. They are desperately searching for HELP!  And we choose not to look away! We choose to care and serve! We are a community response offering shelter in the churches during the coldest months of the year ( November 1-March 1) &  an alternative to homelessness in our county. It is not the solution to end homelessness...but it is a start! We hope you will join our mission.

BC Streetreach is a 100% charitable organization.  We have no paid staff, we depend 100% on the generosity of the community,volunteers and churches to fund & operate this program. We have never applied for any Federal or State grants, due to we feel God has commissioned the church to meet the needs of the poor...not the government. We also feel that where God leads...HE provides! 

The number of individuals that need our help increases daily, yet we remain assured that in answering the call of God to help the needy, we are doing His work and He will bless it. If you know someone living on the streets, in need of temporary shelter, please ask them to call our message center at (910) 842-2711, leave a contact number for a volunteer to return their call. Please allow a 1-3 hour window for a response. As we are often in the mission field.

Please consider inviting a BCSTR representative to speak to your congregation or social group about how they can get involved.
