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.
