Creating safe spaces for beautiful people.

Welcome to Wildflower House

Wildflower House is a grass-roots, housing initiative birthed out of a deep desire to give shelter to unhoused women in Asheville, NC. Wildflower House focuses on older ladies and LGBTQ+ ladies that have special needs and vulnerabilities. The goal of Wildflower House is to continue coming up with creative ways to give safe and comfortable shelter to these beautiful women.
Wildflower House got its name from two very powerful qualities that both the women we serve and wildflowers have in common, resiliency and fortitude. 
We strive to be humble, yet bold.
We value beauty, comfort, dignity, inclusion, safety, and transparency.
Thank you for your interest in Wildflower House. As you explore this site we hope you will consider supporting our work. Together we can make a difference in the lives of each other and in the lives of the women we serve.

The Sims Cottage

The Sims Cottage is a 3 bedroom/2 bath, 1250 sq’ home located in the heart of West Asheville. The home is close to an ART bus stop and grocery store. Wildflower House pays for a portion of the rent and all of the bills associated with the home. Currently, 3 formerly unhoused ladies call the Sims Cottage home.

Great Efforts

Jubilee Alternative Micro-Shelter (JAMS)

JAMS sheltered, fed, and donated supplies to over 1,200 unhoused folks over the year that it operated. This effort would not have been possible without our extraordinary volunteers, our amazing community partners and the perfect space offered by Jubilee Community!
