There are no homeless shelters in Pender County, said Sandy Harris, president of Pender County Christian Services, which provides food, clothing and services for the needy. She said there’s a task force in the county working on the problem.

“We do have homeless people that are living out in these woods that nobody knows anything about,” she said. “We’ve had several come into our office for services, and they said they have nowhere to go. We send them to Wilmington.”

Contact Pender County Christian Services at 259-5840.
