Take our See the Hope Tour

People experiencing homelessness are our neighbors. We see them all the time walking through town, but what’s their story? There’s no better way to understand what our community faces than seeing it for yourself. So take See the Hope Tour tour. We’ll show you what we’re doing to put people in homes and end homelessness. Take a tour. We want you to see what we’re doing and how you can help. See the Hope Tours run every Thursday from 11 am – 12:15 pm, the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 – 6:45 pm, and the third Wednesday of each month from 8:30 – 9:45 am. We can also schedule other times by appointment. Give us a call at 828-785-9840 if you have any questions.

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.

The Homeward Bound community includes caring staff, volunteers, board members, and people experiencing or moving out of homelessness. We believe that housing is a human right and use the “Housing First” national best practice to end homelessness. We care about the most vulnerable among us and work every day to help them improve their lives. Join us!
