Emergency Services

Do you need assistance?

Sometimes things happen which cannot be overcome without help. Homelessness is like that. If you are experiencing that kind of personal devastation, or you know someone who is struggling in such a way—perhaps a family member or a friend, there is help.  Please keep in mind that there are NO permanent shelters in Brunswick County and after 6pm you usually can't sign in at the shelters in Wilmington or Horry County, SC.

Free Meals

Guest of Streetreach would go to bed hungry if not for the generosity and kindness of volunteer teams and churches who come to the church host sites  to feed the guest a simple dinner and share a message of encouragement and hope. Many times, an act of friendship and fellowship brightens the day of the homeless guest, and we are thankful to all the churches and groups who serve
We are also thankful to the churches in the community that offer a simple sit down meal to the less fortunate across the county.   If you are a new group, interested in preparing, serving or donating a meal please contact:  Donna @ 842-2711
