Housing & Houselessness
Spend time with organizations that work to create a strong safety net for people experiencing houselessness, develop sustainable solutions to the challenges of houselessness, and fight for decent affordable housing.
A Home On Campus
The opportunities for engaging in the Housing & Houselessness Issue Area begins here on our very own campus, where you’ll partner with our Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church to host Room in the Inn. Room in the Inn is a mobile shelter for women experiencing houselessness, and you’ll connect and spend time with the women who find their home for a week on our campus.
A Home Away From Home
Your engagement in housing and houselessness issues extends off-campus as well. Your off-campus opportunities might include experiences like:
- AHOPE: Support the work of AHOPE day shelter by assisting with weekly tasks
- Habitat for Humanity: Participate over break with a sports team engaging in a regional build or work with a work crew for a one day local build
- Beloved Community: Engage with a local intentional community working to build resources for people experiencing poverty and houselessness
While you make your home at Warren Wilson, you will actively seek ways to help others find theirs.
