people experience homelessness on any given night in Buncombe County

Homeward Bound’s AHOPE Day Center is Western North Carolina’s only day center for people experiencing homelessness and it meets a crucial need. AHOPE is often the only place that people who live outside can go for services, which makes it a powerful outreach and engagement tool in our community. Almost everyone experiencing homeless in our area comes through AHOPE and it serves as a hub of information and connection to other community resources.

AHOPE provides showers, mail receipt, phone service, and storage of personal belongings

Homeward Bound has been a blessing to me. I moved back to Asheville in 2017 and was homeless and got on [a community] housing waiting list at AHOPE. Six months later I was approved and Homeward Bound helped move me into an apartment. They helped with furniture, housewares, everything. That was 16 months ago and I now have a good job and a home. Thank you Homeward Bound for all you do!
