Students in Need

Everyone deserves a safe and nurturing environment while pursuing a full education. Hope House of Myrtle Beach strives to foster a community-based support system which enables homeless high school students in Myrtle Beach to have the shelter, security, and life tools they need to obtain a high school diploma, develop their career goals, and be their best.

How do I know if someone in my community could qualify for help from HHMB?

  • Migratory children who qualify as homeless because they are living in substandard circumstances

  • Children who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence

  • Children and youth who are sharing housing of other persons due to loss of housing as a result of economical hardship, are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks or camping grounds due to lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster care placement.

  • Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designated for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accomodation for human beings

  • Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.
