There are many circumstances which can cause people in our area to sometimes require temporary shelter, food, clothing or other types of help. Concerned churches, businesses, and individuals have been there joining hearts and hands to meet these needs. Brunswick County Streetreach desires to partner with these individuals and organizations to provide a home between homes. Our prayer is to be that hand-up during a time of crisis.
Do to others as you would like them to do to you.
--Luke 6:31, NLT

HOW YOU MAY HELP SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM:
Your financial contributions make a difference! All of our team members are volunteers that use their own vehicles and fuel. All of the items that we distribute to homeless people are donated or paid for by the contributions of individual donors. We do not receive grants and we are not funded by any church or organization on a monthly basis.
We are transparent in our financial practices, so you can see how your gifts are being used to help the lost, the poor and homeless in our local community and around the world. If gifts received are above a specific need, they will be used where the need is greatest. We specifically use your gifts in the area that you have specified.
We are deeply grateful for your investment in Streetreach! Please know we value your faithful prayer support as well as every financial contribution that you entrust to us. We strive to use each gift wisely so that as many people as possible have the chance to transform their lives out of poverty and homelessness.
Believing in God's sovereignty and loving grace, we have not had to accept any government funding at this time. All finances have been through the faithful support of God's people as he moves in their hearts to give to this program. As the Lord blesses and the Holy Spirit moves, this outreach to the homeless will be funded and grow to the fullest extent of God's will and His plan. BCSTR rests on a foundation of faith and is totally dependent on God's provision in all areas of the interfaith program.
