Code Purple in Effect for Wednesday, November 30th

Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

The purpose of the Code Purple procedure is to provide a coordinated effort among Asheville and Buncombe County shelters and other organizations to provide emergency overflow shelter to people experiencing homelessness when the temperature is at or below 32 degrees (including windchill).

During Code Purple, participating shelters will provide more beds with fewer requirements than their typical programming.
