MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A center providing a haven for homeless youth in Myrtle Beach may close by year's end.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that Project Lighthouse did not receive a $105,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Sea Haven executive director Christina Jackson says the loss of the grant has left Project Lighthouse scrambling for money.

Jackson says there's only enough money to operate through the end of the month, although the agency has approached various foundations in the state for money.

Project Lighthouse provides a drop-in center for young people who find themselves on the streets. It works with those ages 16 to 22, but does not turn younger people away.
