North Strand Housing Shelter Expands to Accommodate Childcare Needs
and More Homeless Families and Veterans
North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina—To accommodate the growing number of families and veterans needing temporary shelter in the area, North Strand Housing Shelter, 2335 Highway 9, recently increased bedspace by 10 beds, to assist more families with larger numbers of children. “This was truly a community effort,” said Michael Bolch, CEO of the shelter. “Several local businesses, churches and individuals stepped up with cash gifts, materials and discounts to make the expansion possible.”
This spring, NSHS will break ground on another expansion providing space for childcare and classes/ meetings. The new space will be attached to an existing facility providing transitional housing for veterans. “This project will do double duty,” Bolch said. “The room will provide a private area where residents can meet with staff or receive assistance from other agencies. Parents staying in the shelter can reserve the room for childcare, meeting the need for a safe space for their children while they are at work.”
Bolch says it is humbling to see such a great outpouring of support in the community. To learn more about the upcoming construction needs, contact Dana Black at email@example.com or (843) 798-9091.
