Homeward Bound of WNC

WHAT THEY DO: Homeward Bound’s mission is to prevent and end homelessness in our community through permanent housing and support. We have moved more than 2,400 individuals, families and veterans into homes, and 92% of them have not returned to homelessness. Through the national best practice of housing first, we are committed to moving people into housing as a first step, then wrapping them in supportive services to help stabilize their lives so they can stay in housing and improve their quality of life. Homeward Bound’s AHOPE Day Center is the front door to housing.


  • A matching gift challenge will match all donations up to $100,000, dollar for dollar, thanks to a generous donor.


  • All donors of $300 or more will be entered into a drawing to win a basket full of Homeward Bound goodies.
Every time I’ve been knocked down, I’ve been able to get back up, and the one time I couldn’t do it by myself, the help came to me.
