The stereotypes of homelessness are no longer valid. An older man clutching a bottle no longer represents the face of the homeless. Instead, the problems have become more complex: dramatic changes in family structure, limited affordable housing, reductions in social services, lack of education and job skills along with the devastation of drug and alcohol abuse have ripped deep into the very fabric of our community. Therefore, the homeless in our community face a multi-faceted set of issues that hold them back from a life of hope and stability.
In order to achieve our goal we will need the Brunswick County community to step forward with generous support. I am both hopeful and confident that we can count on your partnership. We look forward to your participation and your helping us continue to change lives for a brighter tomorrow.
