Right now, hundreds of our neighbors are experiencing homelessness

Homelessness may be caused by a variety of situations, including job loss, inability to recover from hurricane damage, mental and physical disabilities, addictions, changes in family such as divorce, death of a spouse, loss of primary wage owner, or medical conditions. 

Brunswick is the only city in the state of Georgia where over half of the households earn less than $25,000 a year, and 39% of the city-limit residents are below the poverty line. Brunswick’s poverty rate is three times the national average (12.8%) and more than twice that of the state as a whole. Any unpredicted economic upset can leave a vulnerable adult or family on the streets.

Why Hand in Hand of Glynn?

Caring for one homeless individual costs the community $40,000 per year

But when our neighbors have a home, they spend less time in:
Shelters
Hospitals
Police Custody

Hand in Hand's 60 Tiny Homes will save our community $1,680,000/year

Research shows housing an individual in permanent supportive housing costs about $12,000/year per individual housed with the added advantage that the beneficiary receives services to help them leave homelessness behind for ever.
Step 1 – Housing
Step 2. Support
Step 3. Community

Support Our Program

Our residents have permanent homes, a supportive community, and the help they need to avoid a return to life on the streets.
