Homeless Services: Programs

Our Homeless Services offer services and hope to people living without housing support while they wait to get into permanent housing.

Room in the Inn

The Room in the Inn (RITI) program is our only shelter option, for 12 women who for a variety of reasons can’t stay at a shelter. We partner with 60 faith communities who take turns hosting the women for a week, providing all of their meals, shelter, and evening activities.

To be considered for RITI, please go to our Day Center to be evaluated for entry.

Day Center

Our Day Center is the front door to accessing housing and other help. We offer basic services like showers, storage, mail, access to phones, and coffee. Other agencies come here to help people who are living without housing get access to services. Most importantly, the process to start moving toward permanent housing begins here. We’re open every day of the year, opening at 7 a.m. and closing at noon on weekdays, and from 8 a.m.– noon on the weekends. The Day Center is located at 19 N. Ann Street in downtown Asheville.

All housing assessments begin here. Our staff and volunteers work with people to fill out housing applications, get connected to mental health and substance abuse treatment and medical care, complete disability applications, apply for food stamps, and find employment.
