Homeward Bound of Western No...

We end homelessness.

We end homelessness in Western NC. We do this by moving people into permanent housing, providing them with basic household items, and wrapping them around with the appropriate level of support. We've moved over 1,300 men, women and children into permanent housing since 2006 - and 89% of them stay housed.

We began using the Housing First model in 2006, a national best practice, after our community adopted the 10 year plan to end chronic homelessness. We move people out of cars, camps and shelters into permanent housing - mostly privately owned apartments and trailers. We provide rental and utility assistance until the person can be self-sustaining.

We provide services to people who are still homeless to keep them going while waiting to move into permanent housing through our AHOPE Day Center. We offer things like showers, mail and storage but most importantly, we begun the journey towards housing.  

We also operate a 12-woman mobile shelter through our Room in the Inn program, in partnership with over 60 faith communities. The women move week to week to our partners who open their fellowship halls and classroom space to provide the women a safe place to rest each evening.
