BeLoved Asheville

WHAT THEY DO: BeLoved Asheville brings people from diverse backgrounds to use their voices, skills and unique gifts to create innovative solutions for some of the toughest challenges we face: racism and systemic inequities, food and housing security, poverty and lack of health care. Our projects include our BeLoved Village of deeply affordable homes; our street medic team; cultural organizing and racial healing projects via Asheville en Espanol and Asheville in Black; rapid response to community crises; and La Cocina de Mamá/Mama’s Kitchen, a food truck with a mission.


  • Donations of $3,000 or more will become a named sponsor of the kitchen of a home in the BeLoved Village of deeply affordable homes.


  • All donations, up to a total of $15,000, have been generously matched by an anonymous donor.


  • Donations of $100 or more will be entered into a raffle for a BeLoved community swag bag.
Their web of actions is made up of relationships and inspires connections that strengthen our community.
