Homelessness is a huge topic so when we talk about it, it’s not always easy to know where to begin. That doesn’t mean that having an honest and constructive dialogue about a big topic like homelessness needs to be confusing, threatening or overwhelming!

In fact, we’re happy to lead the way and start talking about the issues that matter. The Asheville-Buncombe Homeless Initiative’s social media project offers us a great platform as we take an honest accessible look at housing stability and homelessness in our community and answer questions like:

  • What does housing stability mean to people?
  • What resources and solutions exist to address the varied aspects of a housing crisis in our community?
  • What are some outcomes of our efforts to end homelessness?
  • And, very importantly, how can people get involved?

To get started, over the coming month, we will delve into the experiences of mothers, fathers, siblings and children who have lived, worked and even fought for our country and who have experienced a housing crisis to better understand the impact of homelessness in the Asheville-Buncombe community. You’ll hear about successes and, sadly, you’ll also hear about the stories of people who have lost their lives while experiencing homelessness as we come together for the 2010 Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service.
