Hope House of Myrtle Beach is a newly formed nonprofit organization committed to providing a healthy environment for registered Myrtle Beach High School students who are designated homeless or otherwise burdened by circumstances beyond their control and who are actively completing their academic requirements to receive a high school diploma.
Every child requires and deserves a safe and nurturing environment while pursuing a full education and these children in particular understand their paths from their current situations to success is through that very education.
Hope House strives to insure a community based support system, which will give these heroic high school students in Myrtle Beach the shelter and security they need to obtain a diploma and develop their career goals. Our two major objectives are to insure that the immediate critical needs of homeless high school students are met; ie: adequate food supply, clothing, housing, transportation, tutorial services, books and other school supplies as well as medical and dental care as needed.
Our long range objective is to provide a safe dormitory-like living space for these designated students. We have a close relationship with MBHS administration, dedicated folks who have been striving to personally meet the students’ needs for many years. Together we hope to build a successful model that can be implemented in other high schools in the county.
