Coastal Horizon Emergency Youth Shelter
Previously the Coastal Horizon’s Emergency Youth Shelter received grants in the range of $1000 to $1500 each year.
The grants are used to provide clothing to teenagers who often arrive with only the clothes on their back.
The shelter developed “St. Jude’s Wilmington Comfort Bags” which contain shirts, jeans, underwear and socks.
Each “comfort bag” costs around $75/each. We have been able to provide over 50 'comfort' bags in the past years.
The Foundation was pleased to join the church in providing assistance to this needed service in Wilmington. The church was able to provide gift cards and other items during the holiday season.
