While sipping on a glass of wine or grabbing a late night coffee, residents can help fund an organization working to end homelessness locally and stopping people from spending the night in the harsh winter weather. “Every time it is cold and I go into my own house, I think, 'It is not OK that people in our community are sleeping outside tonight,” says Emily Ball, director of community engagement at Homeward Bound of Asheville.
Local agencies are making progress towards implementing the "10-year Plan to End Homelessness," but they need more resources and support. That was the theme that emerged from the "2011 Asheville-Buncombe Homeless Summit," held March 25 at the Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville. Photos by Jerry Nelson
