Homeward Bound's Mission

Homeward Bound of WNC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency working in Buncombe County. We end homelessness by moving people into permanent housing and providing the support that they need to stay there.

The Event to End Homelessness

Watch Homeward Bound’s 8th Annual Welcome Home Luncheon online! The event features music, poetry, and film depicting the lives of folks experiencing homelessness and the service providers who help them into their very own homes.

Volunteer

Volunteers help us end homelessness in our region by helping provide much-needed services to people transitioning into a home.
Homeward Bound offers a variety of service experiences for individuals, faith communities, businesses, and schools and youth groups.

Housing First

Homeward Bound proudly uses the best practice Housing First model to end homelessness. Housing First means that everyone has a human right to live inside. It means we move people out of homelessness and into homes as quickly as possible. Then we wrap around the services they need to stay there. We house everyone, regardless of illness, disability, addictions, behaviors, gender, religion, or any other characteristic.

Veteran Services

Our Veterans Housing Services Program includes both Housing and Homelessness Prevention services. Both use the Housing First model to provide short-term financial support and case management to individuals and families at imminent risk of homelessness and those experiencing literal homelessness in Buncombe County.

Coronavirus Donation Drive

Homeward Bound is collecting items desperately in need.

Go to Homeward Bound’s AHOPE Day Center directly for showers, housing assistance, and more. A monthly gift allows you to spread the financial impact of your giving across the entire year, lessening a one-time drain on your resources. Also, recurring gifts help Homeward Bound as we can more accurately predict income in advance, which helps with longer range budgeting and decision-making.
