What is the REACH Fund?

Homeward Bound’s REACH Fund ends homelessness through the support of real estate professionals, members of associated industries, home buyers and sellers, and businesses community-wide. Local real estate professionals agree to donate a portion of each commission so that everyone can have a key to their own home.

“I first learned of REACH during a brief presentation at a team meeting and knew right away it was something I wanted to participate in. What better way to give back than connecting my work helping others with their homes, to supporting those who need a helping hand to find their own home. The website makes it very easy to donate. Personally, I set a minimum amount and give up to 1% of my commission from each closing to the REACH Fund in honor of my clients. Homeward Bound provides note cards for me to give to my clients at closing and sends a lovely note from the organization to my clients confirming the donation was received. My contribution as an individual may be small, but our combined efforts can positively impact the lives of so many in Asheville. Real estate professionals helping to end homelessness in Asheville. I can’t think of a better way to stand together for our profession and community.”  –Wendy

Perks of Joining REACH

Everyone who donates to the fund will receive a REACH badge to use in their marketing materials for that year, will appear on this website and in other Homeward Bound communications. Real estate professionals receive commemorative cards to use at closing recognizing that a gift has been given in honor of the buyer and/or seller. Anyone donating $1,200 or more a year will receive these benefits and be invited to exclusive Homeward Bound Key Society giving circle events. 

Proceeds from the REACH fund benefit Homeward Bound’s Welcome Home Donation Center, where furniture and household goods are collected from the community and distributed to those who are moving out of homelessness and into housing.
