Asheville Homeless

8 posts in this topic

What can you guys tell me about the homeless situation in Asheville? Some friends and I are considering moving to Asheville from Columbia, SC to open up a nonprofit homeless cafe. We're doing a scouting trip this weekend and would love to know where the homeless in Asheville typically hang out. If you have any thoughts, I'd love to hear them!

I was just in Asheville over the last 3 days and there seemed to be quite a people who appeared to be homeless in the downtown area as we drove through.

Three things you're guaranteed to see when driving around downtown Asheville:

1)Hippies

2)Floridians

3)Homeless folks

If you don't see them, you're driving with your eyes closed. :)

^Of course on occasion you might find a three-for-one: a homeless Floridian hippy. :lol:

I used to live and work in downtown Asheville and I don't know if I have ever been to a city with a concentration of homeless people like Asheville. They are everywhere downtown and they are a real burden on the downtown businesses IMO. I would constantly have to work to move them out of my place of work and I have a college friend that works in a gallery downtown that spends a good part of her day dealing with the homeless in the gallery. I am sympathetic to the plight of the homeless but it doesnt seem that the City of Asheville has done an acceptable job to deal with the homeless population there. For such a small city it really has a larger than normal and highly visible homeless population I hope that the city can do a better job of meeting the needs and getting these individuals off the streets.
