Continuum of Care Homeless Programs

The HEARTH Act consolidates the three separate McKinney-Vento homeless assistance programs, including the Supportive Housing Program, Shelter Plus Care Program, and Section 8 SupportModerate Rehabilitation SRO Program into a single grant program known as the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program.

Myrtle Beach Housing Authority Shelter + Care Program (COC-PSH program)

The Housing Authority of Myrtle Beach (MBHA), Waccamaw Housing Inc. (WHI) and the Waccamaw Center for Mental Health (WCMH) have partnered in the Myrtle Beach Housing Authority Shelter + Care Program, which provides rental assistance for hard-to-serve homeless persons with disabilities in connection with supportive services.

Shelter Plus Care is a program designed to provide housing and supportive services on a long-term basis for homeless persons with disabilities and their families who are living in places not intended for human habitation (e.g., streets) or in emergency shelters. The program allows for a variety of housing choices, and a range of supportive services funded by other sources, in response to the needs of the hard-to-reach homeless population with disabilities.

All applicants are referred through Waccamaw Center for Mental Health. Contact:

Supportive Housing Programs (COC-PSH program)

The Housing Authority of Myrtle Beach (MBHA), Coastal Housing Development (CHD) and New Directions have partnered in the Supportive Housing Program, which provides rental assistance for chronically homeless persons with disabilities.

The Supportive Housing Program (SHP) helps develop housing and related supportive services for people moving from homelessness to independent living. Program funds help homeless people live in a stable place, increase their skills and their income, and gain more control over the decisions that affect their lives. This type of supportive housing enables special needs populations to live as independently as possible in a permanent setting.

MBHA and CHD work closely with New Directions to administer this program. All applicants are referred through New Directions. Contact Dana 843-918-1556
