Haywood Street is a United Methodist mission congregation and faith-based nonprofit founded in 2009 by Rev. Brian Combs based in Asheville, North Carolina. Core programs include weekly worship, a clothing closet, community garden, a free community lunch known as the Downtown Welcome Table, and Haywood Street Respite, which offers a safe place for adults experiencing homelessness to stay on a short term basis after being discharged from a hospital. Those who eat and worship together at Haywood Street are individuals carrying all their worldly possessions in ragged backpacks as well as privileged professionals, stay-at-home moms, students and the working poor.

Great day last Tuesday putting the value of IP to work supporting the Boys and Girls Club of Asheville / Buncombe with the guys from our team!
On September 30, 2013, we co-sponsored Venture Asheville’s Wicked Biz Pitch competition (held at the Wicked Weed Brewery – another great entrepreneurial story). In this competition, ideas ranging from a new beer growler dispenser to a daily comedy app to a potted planter display to natural body products were presented.
