Ending chronic homelessness – Our Method
By being data-driven and following proven practices, we will:
- Create and maintain a by-name list of every identified chronically homeless person in Asheville and Buncombe County
- Create a housing plan for each person on that list: What housing program will permanently end their homelessness? Do they need scattered-site or congregate housing? Do they need on-site services? Do they need short or long-term assistance?
- Identify gaps in resources: who on our list can we not make a housing plan for, either because we don’t have enough capacity in existing housing programs or because they need a program that doesn’t exist in our community?
- Fill the gaps: expand capacity and develop new housing programs to fully meet the need
No One Left Outside – Ending chronic homelessness
92 cents of every dollar goes directly to end homelessness
A monthly gift allows you to spread the financial impact of your giving across the entire year, lessening a one-time drain on your resources. Also, recurring gifts help Homeward Bound as we can more accurately predict income in advance, which helps with longer range budgeting and decision-making.
Volunteers help us end homelessness
Come volunteer with us! We offer service experiences for individuals, faith communities, businesses, and schools and youth groups. Volunteers help us end homelessness in our region by helping provide much-needed services to people transitioning into a home.

Your clean and gently used household items can help others experience the comforts of home. Your donations go directly to women, men, and children moving in to new homes or are used at our Day Center. Donation receipts are available upon request.
