FLORENCE, S.C. – The official premiere of the documentary film “Unsheltered” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Julia 4 Cinemas at 1110 S. Irby St. in Florence.

Admission is Free. Seating is first come, first served.

The documentary follows Bryan Braddock, the executive director of the House of Hope of the Pee Dee, as he lives as a homeless person on the streets of Augusta, Georgia, with his guide, a homeless man called kNOw Cash.

According to a news release, the film is sure to challenge views on homelessness the same way that it did for Braddock.

The House of Hope is a Christ-centered ministry consisting of the Courtney McGinnis Graham Community Shelter, which provides emergency food and lodging to men, women and families, and the Men’s Home, which offers transitional, long-term help for men seeking a new start to their lives.

The ministry believes that no man, woman or child should have to go without food or a safe place to sleep. It is a Christ-centered community dedicated to meeting those emergency needs daily by offering food, counseling and housing. It also offers long-term help through structured programs, which focus on spiritual growth, education, employment, life management and recovery from substance abuse.

The House of Hope’s goal is to move all people into permanent housing, employment and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

House of Hope of the Pee Dee is located at 1020 W. Darlington St. in Florence. Its phone number is 843-667-9000.
