The Brunswick County Homeless Coalition (BCHC) is a group of volunteers from different faith based ministries, not for profit organizations, local agencies and concerned citizens coming together for the
greater good of Brunswick County's homeless and in need population.
If you have a passion to help those in need and the time and talent
to support BCHC please join us
and help us help the underserved of Brunswick County.
Your prayers, your compassion, and your donations are greatly appreciated and needed.
Together WE CAN make a difference.
Up to 600,000 men, women and children go homeless every night in the United States. The U S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) states that homelessness and poverty are tightly linked. People who are living in poverty often must choose between food, shelter and other basic needs. For the poor, an accident, a medical crisis, a lost paycheck can all translate into not having a place to call home.
Matthew 25: 35-40 NIV
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. 37 the righteous will answer him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothed you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go visit you? 40 " The King will reply", 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
BCHC's mission is to serve as an advocate for the homeless and those in need by increasing awareness and education of issues in Brunswick County, and by exploring, promoting, recruiting and facilitating resources to meet these needs.
