Notice from Buncombe Homeless Coalition:
Code Purple in effect for Suday, 12/18/22.
Purpose of Code Purple:
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.
