New homeless shelter coming to Horry County

New plans are in the works for the North Strand Housing Shelter in Longs, which is one of only a handful of homeless shelters in the county, and the only one that provides shelter for families.

The plans are to build a new 37-bed facility on the same lot, thanks to $150,000 coming from the Community Block Grant. The allocation of the money is partially the result of the county's community needs survey.
