Homelessness is a community-wide problem with a community-wide solution. We can end homelessness in Western North Carolina – but we need your help.

You Can:

    • Engage in the work of our local 10-year plan to end homelessness. Contact the Asheville-Buncombe Homeless Initiative at (828) 259.5851 to learn more about it & to find out when the next meetings of the Homeless Coalition or Homeless Advisory Committee are so you can attend.
    • Join the North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness & the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and stay up-to-date on homeless policy issues.
    • Contact your legislators at the local, state, and national levels – let them know you want to see homelessness ended in your community. Encourage them to fund what works: permanent housing.
    • Spread the word. Educate the community around you & engage them in ending homelessness in WNC.
    • Invite us to speak. Are you part of a faith community, civic club, or other group of people who’d like to learn more about homelessness in our community? We’d love to share our work with your group.
