Help for those experiencing homelessness in WNC.
Homeward Bound helps people who are homeless move into permanent housing in Buncombe and Henderson Counties. We also have a 12-bed mobile shelter program for women in Buncombe County through our Room in the Inn program. We work with people who are literally homeless––meaning that they stay in a shelter, car, or campsite.
As a participating agency of NC HMIS, we use data privacy practices. You can see the details here: Privacy Notice NC HMIS – 4.13.16
