With the deep cold and winds that have settled in this week, we have been doing street outreach from downtown to the County borders offering camping gear and warming supplies. Our street medics are doing life-saving work and even spent some hours this Saturday doing street education with a class of school students. All this with the goal of ending homeless death and gaining allies in the work to end homelessness. Our Street Medic Team and our new Tiny House Village are just two of the solutions created by BeLoved Asheville leaders experiencing homelessness. We invite you to support these leaders and these projects by becoming a monthly sustainer at www.belovedasheville.com/donate

Con el frío profundo y los vientos que se han asentado esta semana, hemos estado haciendo actividades de ayuda en el centro de la ciudad hasta los limites del Condado, ofreciendo equipo de campamento y suministros para que se mantengan abrigados . Nuestros médicos de la calle están haciendo un trabajo para salvar vidas e incluso pasamos algunas horas este sábado haciendo educación en la calle con una clase de estudiantes de la escuela. Todo esto con el objetivo de acabar con la muerte de gente sin hogar y ganar aliados en el trabajo para acabar con la falta de vivienda. Nuestro equipo de Street Medic y nuestra nueva Tiny House Village son solo dos de las soluciones creadas por los líderes de BeLoved Asheville que están sin hogar. Lo invitamos a apoyar a estos líderes y estos proyectos convirtiéndose en un sostén mensual en www.belovedasheville.com/donate

Meanwhile at our Liberation Station, we held a two hour Tai Chi retreat focused on meditation and movement. Thank you Bruce Kennedy for supporting our new healing initiatives! ... See MoreSee Less
