The intent of this program is to provide educational, informational, and prevention support for runaway, homeless, street youth in order to reduce the daily risks for these youth and to convince and assist as many as possible to utilize the available community services to leave the street for a more productive, safe life. 400+ homeless youth per year access this facility.

THIS PROGRAM CAN OFFER
Travel Kit: Backpack with toiletries, watch, disposable camera, journal, pen, phone card, or other necessities
Wallet Assembly: ID card (recognized by local law enforcement), program literature, and local service agency information
Personal Services: Showers, clothing, food, laundry facilities, contact with family, and referrals to local service agencies
Food vouchers available at Ocean Boulevard hotels for youth to receive food boxes from center.
Individual/family counseling if applicable
Assistance with medical, dental referrals
Assistance with obtaining birth certificates and I.D.s required by law
Participation in community service projects
Volunteer and intern opportunities for university and high school students
Opportunities to show us your talents in art, music, drama, dance, photography, etc.


The Drop-In Center is located at:
305-C Highway 15, Hewitt Place
Myrtle Beach, SC 29577



In 2012, 654 students in Horry County were homeless,
according to McKinney Vento Guidelines.

"This program will not abet street life…
but will offer services that may reduce the risks that life on the street ultimately carries."

Purr-fect Company

It’s a known fact cats make us feel better and seem to know just when to be there to comfort us.  
Maude and Willie offer the best therapy of love, patience, and friendship to the youth participants.


Maude
Maude was our first four legged homeless “traveler” to access services from Project Lighthouse.  She found our center and has been a joy to staff and youth for many years.

Willie
Willie is our “free-spirited” feline. He was rescued from underneath Sea Haven Shelter Home trapped in a foundation block.  He wanders the facility looking for love when he deems appropriate.  He is definitely “too cool for school”!


We gladly accept donations to keep our furry friends happy and healthy.
