On Wednesday, October 12th at 3 p.m., Homeward Bound will host a press conference announcing its recent receipt of a federal grant from the Department of Health & Human Services to address substance abuse. Homeward Bound was one of only 20 grant recipients nationwide and was awarded the grant to expand its existing substance abuse program in recognition of the program’s significant outcomes.
The press conference will be held on-site at Homeward Bound, located at 19 N. Ann Street in downtown Asheville. Parking is available adjacent to Homeward Bound at Salvation Army (located on the corner of N. Ann St. and Haywood St.).
Homeward Bound of Asheville, Inc. is a local nonprofit that seeks to end homelessness in Asheville and Buncombe County through its five programs: the A HOPE Day Center; PATH; Room in the Inn; HOPE to HOME; and Pathways to Permanent Housing. Each program is designed to lead the clients it serves out of homelessness and into permanent housing and to provide the relational and practical support they need to stabilize once housed. Since beginning that focus in September 2006, Homeward Bound has facilitated supportive housing for 315 people, 89% of whom remain stably housed.
