Haywood Street Respite is a safe place for homeless adults to rest, get three meals a day, and be helped in other ways to “get back on their feet” following discharge from the hospital. It is short-term care in a home-like setting for folks who are too ill or frail to recover on the streets after surgery or acute illness.

This program is 100% privately funded.  Your help is needed to sustain the ministry.  Donate online via the Donate button below, or mail a contribution to Haywood Street Respite, PO Box 2982, Asheville, NC 28802.


At Haywood Street Congregation, our vision is to create a community where each person recognizes him or herself as a child of God worthy of love and grace.  Folks bring their brokenness and receive all sorts of healing at Haywood St.  With the addition of the respite program, physical healing is also supported.

Ways to Volunteer and Get Involved – If you are interested in volunteering as a driver, companion, or overnight host, please attend a Companion Orientation first (upcoming orientation dates listed in column to the right).

We also need your help in providing supper for our friends in Respite any night of the week, but especially on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Please call Respite at 828-575-2477, ext 102 to get on the schedule.
