In September 2010, the publication 10 Year Collaborative Plan to End Homelessness in Horry County (PDF) was created.  This plan is a product of Home Alliance, Inc., with support from the cities of Myrtle Beach and Conway and Horry County government.  The plan examines the needs and resources of the county in seeking solutions to homelessness.
