The Haywood Street Congregation is an urban ministry located at 297 Haywood Street, Asheville, NC. It is a 501 c3 nonprofit organization, home to the Downtown Welcome Table serving nearly 800 meals per week; the Haywood Street Respite, providing a safe place for homeless adults to stay on a short-term basis after a hospital stay or outpatient surgery; the Haywood Street Gardens; and God’s Outfitters Clothing Closet.
The Fresco is the newest component of the ministry. Affirming sacred worth, restoring human dignity, and sabotaging the shame of poverty, the Haywood Street Fresco announces, in pigment and plaster, that you matter.
