Another 30 people moved from Asheville homeless camps to temporary housing
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) — Organizations across Asheville continue to help those living in homeless camps find more permanent shelter. That’s because the city has recently cracked down on clearing some of these sites.
On Friday, staff provided 15 hotel rooms for another 30 people. But, it’s a temporary fix.
“Right now, there isn’t a long-term plan,” said Nicole Brown, deputy director of programs and strategy with Homeward Bound.
Each day, Brown makes it her mission to change that.
“We believe that housing is a basic human right, and that housing is the answer to homelessness,” she said.
