One of our disabled veterans in a wheelchair found housing in Myrtle Beach. The Elks Club provided a housing package (pots, pans, dishes) and he was thrilled to be able to move into his own apartment.
Then, one of our veteran families with two children was able to get their vehicle back on the road, with the help of local church donations, an ALA donation and a private donation, allowing the father to get back to work. He is now working again to provide for his family.
Finally, today a man walked into the shelter to just say “hello”. He had been a resident when we first opened the second building in 2015. After sickness caused him to loose his home, he stayed with us for several months, saved his money and was able to move on. He now drives an eighteen wheeler and loves his life. He was on the way out of town on a job, and just wanted to stop and thank the shelter.
