Homeless Services

Our Housing First approach means that we move each person into permanent housing as quickly as possible, without any prerequisites. Our Homeless Services offer help and hope to people living without housing support while they wait to get into permanent housing.

PATH Team

PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) is a program designed to identify and conduct outreach to people living on the streets with a severe and persistent mental illness and who are not receiving treatment. The PATH team goes into the community (campsites, hospitals, jail, etc.) to connect with these individuals. It builds trusting relationships and collaborates on each person’s goals aimed at reducing harm and improving general quality of life. These relationships facilitate connections to other services, sometimes including mental health, primary care, housing, and sustainable income. For more info, please email Kate Caton, at kate@homewardboundwnc.org.

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.

We partner with 60 faith communities who take turns hosting the women for a week, providing all of their meals, shelter, and evening activities. This gives women who aren’t a good fit for a shelter environment a safe place to sleep each night while waiting to get into permanent housing.

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

AHOPE 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 (Wednesdays 7-10:30 a.m.), 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.
