Description: The Homeless Shelter is a temporary, emergency program. It operates seven days a week from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Location is 600 Court Street, Jacksonville, NC 28540 (hyperlink address)

The shelter can accommodate 26 residents in two dorm rooms and two family rooms. Residents may stay up to three months and must be involved in positive self-help activities. This is not a flop house program.

The majority of our program clients are chronically homeless persons. Typically, our clients are persons who slept in a car or under a bridge the previous night, were evicted and are without back-up financial resources, or were discharged from a health care or public safety facility and are without a permanent address.

Homelessness comes at a very high cost to individuals, communities, and systems of care. The research shows that providing housing to someone experiencing chronic homelessness results in reduced utilization of publicly- funded services such as police, hospital, emergency and impatient services, and the correctional systems.


Onslow Soup Kitchen

Our Soup Kitchen hours are Monday-Friday 11am-Noon.
Food insecurity is a defined reality for hundreds of thousands of hard working Americans who still cannot keep food on the table. It’s affecting more than just the families living at or below the poverty line. Addressing hunger and malnutrition is the right thing to do and is a smart investment.

The Soup Kitchen is a vital resource toward helping Onslow County become a healthy, food secure community. Activities are:
    Lunch Meals
    Mobile Soup Kitchen
    Monthly Food Bank
    Support to Church Food Pantries
