Lives Touched...

In an average month, Brunswick County Homeless Coalition provides direct assistance to about 20-30 at-risk individuals or families to help keep them from becoming homeless and provides about 7-14 nights of emergency shelter to individuals and families who are homeless. Because Brunswick County has no general permanent transitional shelter, many are referred to shelters in Horry and New Hanover Counties. Brunswick County Homeless Coalition volunteers work 365 days a year to answer calls from people in need.

Thank You...

Brunswick County Homeless Coalition would like to say thank you to groups and organizations who have provided recent financial donations. Donations go directly to help people in need here in Brunswick County.
