Did you know that Wilmington has an emergency shelter just for children ages 6-18? That's right. Last year alone more than 50 children were sheltered here for a combined 1785 days. We are so grateful that Open House Youth Shelter of Coastal Horizons Center is here for the children who so desperately need them. #hereforcapefear

Open House Emergency Youth Shelter and Residential Services
Open House is an emergency shelter for troubled, runaway, homeless, abused, neglected and other displaced youth in the community. Youth ages 6 to 18 are eligible for services. Open House provides a positive peer community and encourages youth’s personal growth through skill building and counseling, providing for basic food, clothing and shelter needs, as well as long-term residential services. In addition to providing youth with basic food, clothing and shelter necessities, to ensure they are safe and not resorting to unsafe/unlawful independent living skills, Open House provides confidential clinical services for each individual youth and their families, while they are in shelter care, and for a period of three months after discharge, to maximize the success of the family reunification plan.
