Real Estate Agents Combating Homelessness (REACH) Fund

What can the Real Estate Industry do to help?

Last year, agents in Buncombe County alone closed over $1 Billion in real estate sales. If every real estate agent donated a portion of their commission to REACH, this would effectively end chronic homelessness.

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. Anyone donating $1,200 or more a year will receive these benefits and be invited to exclusive Homeward Bound Key Society giving circle events.

Our comMISSION – to end chronic homelessness

Homeward Bound recently launched an ambitious goal of ending chronic homelessness in Buncombe County. As Western North Carolina grows in popularity, we feel a responsibility to ensure that no one is left outside. Homeward Bound’s REACH Fund will tackle this objective through the support of real estate professionals, members of associated industries, home buyers and sellers, and businesses community-wide. Local agents agree to donate a portion of each commission so that everyone can have a key to their own home.

Donate

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.

Volunteer

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.

Give

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.

Why should I care about homelessness?

  • Ethically, practically, and financially, ending it makes our community a better place.
  • When we end homelessness, we see resources freed up to meet other needs, local businesses and tourism faring better, and our neighbors restored to lives of wholeness and dignity.
  • It’s a public health problem. People who are homeless often have to relieve themselves outside. They lack access to health care and often have chronic illnesses, made worse by tough living conditions: sleeping outside in all weather, eating low-quality foods, and being in close quarters with unhealthy people.
  • Homelessness is an economic problem. People without housing consume a lot of public resources and generate expense for the community. In our tourism-driven economy, homelessness can be a deterrent to downtown visitors.
  • Homelessness is a human problem. Our own neighbors live in tents and under bridges, vulnerable to inclement weather and violence, stripped of dignity and our collective respect. At Homeward Bound, we believe a safe, decent, and affordable home is a basic human right.
