Gearing up for a new school year

If you have been on any of our social media pages lately you've seen a lot of buzz about our annual school supply drive. This event is a fun and rewarding project that aims to send 2,000 students back to school with full stocked backbacks this year alone. This event benefits students who will have the tools they need to succeed and provides financial respite to families and even their teachers.

Advocacy Alert: Affordable Housing

From our advocacy partners at The Success Equation:

You know that when our children have a safe place to call home it supports their health and educational success. Last November, an overwhelming majority of Asheville voters joined us in passing the Housing Bond to provide significant funding to increase a variety of housing options for families and individuals.

TAKE ACTION

Will you help shape the future of housing affordability in Asheville by attending a public input meeting on the bond?
