Get Help

I am homeless.

In need of housing? The process starts at AHOPE, where you will meet with the Homeward Bound staff to begin a discussion of the type and urgency of assistance needed. AHOPE’s Day Center also provides showers, mail receipt, phone service, and a place to rest, have a cup of coffee, and store personal belongings until housing is established.

I am a Veteran in need of housing support.

Our Veterans Programs provide short-term financial support and case management to individuals and families at imminent risk of homelessness and to those already experiencing homelessness in Buncombe County.

I know of someone who is homeless.

Homeward Bound’s Outreach team is focused on reaching the most vulnerable homeless individuals living on the streets of our community to connect them with permanent supportive housing, healthcare, disability income, and community mental health services. We meet people where they are: in the woods, under bridges, on the street. Please call Mike at (828) 768-3435 or email if you know someone who needs help.
