AHOPE Day Center
AHOPE is the first step towards moving into housing. We’re open daily – our hours are 7 a.m. – noon on weekdays and 8 a.m. – noon on weekends. We offer basic services like showers, mail, phone, & storage. Most importantly, AHOPE is where housing intakes occur to get people on the road to permanent housing. It’s located at 19 N. Ann Street.
Our PATH team outreaches to people who are homeless and mentally ill, building relationships that allow them to connect clients with crucial mental health care services, as well as basic needs and housing supports.
Room in the Inn is a mobile shelter serving 12 women and operated in partnership with 45 faith communities who take turns hosting the women for a week, providing all of their meals, shelter, and evening activities. RITI’s director coordinates congregations and works with the women to move them out of the program and into permanent housing.
SSVF ends homelessness for veterans in Buncombe County. SSVF outreaches to veterans, offers needs assessment, housing search and application assistance, move-in support, short term financial assistance for housing, short case management support and connection to community resources.
HOPE to HOME pairs teams of volunteers from congregations with a person or family who’s been homeless and is moving into permanent housing. Teams commit to providing financial, material, practical, and, most importantly, relational support for one year as their partners stabilize in housing.
Pathways to Permanent Housing ends homelessness by moving people directly into their own apartments & providing the support they need to stay in housing. 89% of the people it’s housed haven’t become homeless again.
