Help for those experiencing homelessness in WNC.

If you or someone you know is currently experiencing homelessness or about to become homeless, for help please go to our AHOPE Day Center, at 19 N. Ann St. Our staff will talk to you about housing and other resources that may be available for you.

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
