You’re the key to ending homelessness! Your donation will help us put hundreds of households experiencing homelessness in homes this year. We’ll also offer over 10,000 showers and 200,000 cups of coffee this year to people at our AHOPE Day Center while they’re getting the support they need to get a new home.
You can also donate by check or money order by sending it to:
Homeward Bound of WNC
PO Box 1166
Asheville, NC 28802
Homeward Bound of WNC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Your time and talents can help us end homelessness in our region––or provide much-needed services to those transitioning into a home. While most of our volunteers agree that it isn’t always an easy job, the experience will last a lifetime and perhaps become one of the greatest things you’ll ever do.
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s Michael, a Day Center volunteer, in his own words:
“I don’t know if I ever expressed this, but I was always impressed with the level of work you do at Homeward Bound and [the Day Center]. There is so much respect and human dignity in it. Also, you waste absolutely nothing. You can take a small amount of resources and make it perform so many different services. Thanks for letting me volunteer with you!”
The Day Center is open from 7 a.m. to noon every weekday and 8 a.m. to noon on weekends. Day Center volunteers assist in providing basic services to people experiencing homelessness while they wait for housing. Work includes handing out towels and toiletries for showers, checking mail and phone messages, and offering kindness and hope.
Day Center volunteer times include:
- Any weekday, 6:50 a.m.–12:15 p.m.
- Weekend mornings, 7:50–10:15 a.m., 10 a.m.–noon, or 8 a.m.–noon (monthly commitment preferred)
