We are enjoying getting to know Nancy better recently. Though not now homeless, she currently serves as vice-president of the Asheville Homeless Network. Divorced for several years, she is the mother of two teen-age daughters.
She has an apartment now in south Asheville, and has three homeless friends living with her. During the Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas seasons she has what she calls “blowout weekends,” during which she feeds a crowd of about 25 homeless friends, and invites them all to spend two nights. Active also at the Red Door, she is planning to become a volunteer with the Haywood Respite too.
