Strategic Initiative: Ending Chronic Homelessness

People who are chronically homeless have been on the streets or in shelter for at least 12 months and have a disability. The longer people are homeless, the more complex their needs become: they develop chronic medical conditions that don’t get treated, their mental health deteriorates and substance use increases, and they often experience severe trauma because they don’t have a safe place to live. Additionally, their public costs are high because they use emergency medical services and are frequently incarcerated, often for misdemeanors related to living outside. People who’ve become chronically homeless are the some of the most vulnerable members of our community. They have the greatest need for permanent housing but the least opportunity to access it. Based on our current programs, we know that people who’ve been chronically homeless can be successful in housing when we provide the right supports to meet their needs.

A Testimonial from Frankie

“I am so grateful and thankful that Homeward Bound was here when I desperately needed them,” said Frankie, pictured here with his case manager, Donna. “I don’t know what would have happened to me if they hadn’t come along.”

Major shoutout to Benjamin Walls Gallery for being a CHAMPION supporter of Harmonies for Homes! His incredible artistic skill and eye for nature's imagery have made him an integral part of Asheville's art scene. In the mood to spice up your home with new art, or just want to take a friend around the galleries of Asheville? Check out Benjamin Walls Gallery!

"Benjamin built upon his critical acclaim and in 2010 opened his first signature gallery in his hometown of Bristol, TN/VA. Two of his new pieces were exhibited at the Smithsonian in 2014, and four pieces were selected as finalists at the Natural History Museum in London in 2015. In 2016, Benjamin’s work was selected for a large-scale solo exhibit at the Tennessee State Museum. The 6000-ft² exhibit inspired the creation of his large-format coffee table book, “Beyond,” which was published in 2017.

All in all, Benjamin has logged over one million miles in pursuit of the perfect image. He has tracked wild tigers from the back of an elephant in the Indian Jungle, explored the Great Barrier Reef by floatplane, and spent countless nights under the stars. Benjamin considers himself a modern artist, a contemporary explorer, and a results-driven conservationist—assisting non-profits in raising over $300,000 since 2010.

When asked why his work has found such solid footing in a sea of photographers and artists, Benjamin says, “Each moment I’m in the field I’m focused on capturing images that inspire. I don’t take photos that simply document what’s there. Instead, I relentlessly pursue moments of art in nature and refuse to settle for anything less.”'

"My core values are my strongest asset for my clients. Knowledge, professionalism and growth are the three values upon which I continually evaluate my business. Knowledge gives me the ability to add value to each person I touch. Professionalism is the extra step I take to care for others. Growth is continuously living out of my comfort zone and helping clients to do the same. Through these values, I will offer my clients the best experience possible.

I take pride in the fact that my system of helping people discover their needs takes no shortcuts. My first step is to help my clients clarify their goals. The second step is to help my clients figure out a system to reach their goals in a sustainable, simple way. The third step is to coach my clients to arrive at their goals by reminding them of what is important."
