Ways To Give

Financial Giving

We cannot eliminate homelessness without the support of our community, without the support of people like you. By partnering with New Directions through your financial gift, you can help move more people from shelter, to hope, to change, creating a brighter future for the impoverished and homeless in Myrtle Beach, Horry County, and beyond.

individual contributions

  • Your gift of $15 can provide a night’s stay in one of our shelters, allowing a homeless person to rest and regroup with their basic needs provided for.

  • A gift of $50 can help someone begin their journey to overcoming homelessness by providing a three night stay, meals, showers, laundry, and support through case management.

  • A gift of $100 can provide a week’s stay in one of our shelters, giving someone in crisis a chance to connect with the services and resources they so desperately need.

  • $500 can provide a week of shelter to a family of five, a week where they can wake up in safety without worry or fear of where their next meal or their next nights’ rest might come from. 

monthly support

  • A monthly gift of $50 provides 42 nights of shelter for one person including meals, access to laundry, showers, transportation, and support through individualized case management, all for just over $14 a night. 

  • A monthly gift of $100 provides 85 nights of shelter and enables one of our clients to address and overcome possible underlying issues of their homelessness through our Back To Life program.

  • A monthly gift of $250 can help to support a family with children in our shelter as they navigate reentering the workforce, keeping their children enrolled in school, securing dependable childcare, and work on a permanent housing solution.
