A Brief Message and Invitation from BCHC

Greetings, BCHC members,

On behalf of the Board, I hope you and your families are safe and well. This has been a trying time for all of us and all the more so for homeless families and individuals in our community.

I want you to know that despite today’s challenges we continue to provide services to those in need via our 1-888-519-5362 toll free number. Below, I have listed some of the ways BCHC is helping.

In the meantime, I want to invite you to our monthly meeting via Zoom. Although we have not met face-to-face since early March, several of us have met in virtual meetings using Zoom. The meetings have lasted less than an hour and have worked out well. The technology is friendly and we encourage your participation.

For the meeting ID and passcode for the August 11th, 2020 6:30pm meeting, please contact any BCHC member.

We look for forward to seeing you on August 11th. Your ideas and feedback are important in propelling us forward.

How BCHC is Helping During the Covid 19 Crisis

BCHC continues to provide:
• Utility assistance
• Rental assistance
• Food and shelter referrals

Although we have had to curtail motel placements at this time, we are helping clients in need of shelter by working with the Continuum of Care via their new coordinated shelter intake hotline, 910 444 8315, which refers clients to an available New Hanover county shelter most appropriate to their needs.

Thank you for your continued support of BCHC and those in need in our community!

With best wishes,

Joe Staton, BCHC Board President
