We change lives. You can too.

Coastal Horizons' mission to ensure healthier live, stronger families, and safer communities could not be realized without the dedication of time and generosity of people just like you.  There are many ways in which you can help, from a quick and easy online donation, attending one of our annual fundraising events, or simply remembering to visit a special link when shopping online.  Your donations are more critical than ever.  The Opioid Epidemic and COVID-19 Pandemic have hit our communities especially hard.  Even a small donation can have a big impact on someone's life.

Ways you can help

Sponsor or attend an event

Every year Coastal Horizons holds several events to raise awareness and donations for issues that impact our community.  Funds raised help us provide the services needed to make a positive impact on those affected.

Family friendly events like our Coastal Duck Derby that benefits the Open House Emergency Youth Shelter give people of all ages a chance to participate and win great prizes, while the "By Kids, For Kids" Art Auction benefitting Our Children's Place is a great way for young artists to showcase their talents for a great cause!

Our Power of the Purse Silent Auction and Raffle benefitting Wilmington Heath Access for Teens is always a hit with a designer purse raffle and great items up-for-grabs.

Coastal Horizons' Annual Fundraiser Luncheons give attendees a chance to learn more about how Coastal Horizons is making an impact in our community and also hear first-hand accounts of recovery, strength, and forgiveness from well-known guests.  Past speakers have included sports legends Darryl Strawberry and Terry Bradshaw, Actor Giancarlo Esposito, and Medal of Honor Recipient Sergeant Dakota Meyer.
