Imagine walking in the footsteps of a kid who has run away from home to escape years of physical abuse, a dangerous human trafficking network, the chaos of life with a drug-addicted parent, or a house overflowing with rage. This is life for so many homeless kids.Who are the street kids? They are the throw away kids, the street kid prostitutes, pimps, drag queens, drug addicts, and dealers who many people have given up on. God has challenged StreetReach to reach out to, love on, and assist these at-risk young people and older homeless out of the street life and into positive surroundings, teaching them to become productive members of society through the power of Jesus Christ. Who are the street babies? They are the children of the street kids, many times living in desperate situations sometimes needing even the very basics of life such as food.
As Darkness closes in, we might be his/her only hope…National Center on Family Homelessness. The majority of the children are under age 7. Last year, at least 60,000 more children were homeless.
This is of great concern to our organization and we will make every attempt to restore these youths back to safety. We work closely with the Brunswick County Schools, and Social Services via the Mckinney-Vento Homeless Education Act, in hopes of meeting the needs of the homeless youths attempting to finish school. We currently have setup 3 clothing closets for the needy children in BC Schools, we also distribute food backpacks, hygiene products, new socks upon request.
Help us bring homeless kids off the streets and into safety!
