Respite Updates and Meals this weekend

Posted Apr 19, 2022 by Nicole Brown

Hello Respite Meal Train Companions, We continue to be full at Respite this week! One of our friends just found out that she got a placement in skilled nursing and will be moving in on Monday! She is very excited about this next step and asks for prayers around her transition! Her name is Lauren. We are also starting a new companion role where companions accompany our friends to their doctors appointments. We have found that so many of our friends need that support when attending appointments. No medical background required! Just someone to be there with them, listen/take notes, and offer advocacy when needed. If you feel that this might be someone you are interested in please let me know! We are in need of meals on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday this week. If you are able to provide a meal please sign up! Thanks for your support of Respite! Nicole

Respite Meal Train

Posted Apr 5, 2022 by Nicole Brown

Hello Respite Meal Train Companions! We've had a few of our friends leave respite this last week to move into their own housing!! We are very excited for our folks that get the opportunity to leave to a more stable location. So, that currently leaves us with 7 folks staying in respite and we will get 2 more next Monday. It looks like we have the calendar filled up until this weekend. If you are able to bring some food in for this weekend and early next week please let us know! We appreciate each of you for your support of Respite! Peace, Nicole Brown

Weekly Respite Updates

Posted Mar 21, 2022 by Nicole Brown

Hello Respite Meal Train Companions! This weeked we had 2 friends leave Respite. Our friend, Rick, moved into this own apartment! We are very excited for him and hope the best in his new home. Unfortunately another one of our friends had to go back to the hospital and will probably be there for a month due to a blood infection coming back. Prayers for him are greatly appreciated. So, we will be refilling their beds this week and have a new friend coming in today and another one tomorrow. So, we will be full again and still need 12 servings each night! We also have decided to open up Respite to companions and anyone who would like to come in and eat with our folks since Bumcombe County now has low transmission numbers. We do have rapid tests available and will ask folks to take one before coming in and spending a lot of time in Respite. Please let me know if you are interested in spending more time at Respite! We can always use companions during the day to help with cleaning, transportation to doctors appointments, smoke breaks, and just there for companionship! Thanks for all you do! We couldn't do respite without your generosity! Nicole Brown

Thank you for helping us to affirm their worth. We have an opening this Saturday night, July 18, if anyone can help us. Also we still have open days Wednesday, July 22 and Friday, July 24.

Respite is coming home!

Posted Apr 16, 2020 by Hannah Neitzey of Haywood Street Respite

Hello All! We received news today that all of our Respite residents have tested negative for COVID, making it possible for our folks to move back into intentional community life in Respite tomorrow April 17, after breakfast. The only things that will change for you if you have already signed up to bring a meal is where you will deliver the meal, meals do not have to be individual anymore, though if you have already prepared them they certainly can be, and if you are delivering dinner we are requesting delivery a bit earlier. We are asking that meals be delivered to Respite at 297 Haywood St. If you haven't been before, look for the covered patio area and you can call 828-575-2477 ext. 102 to let someone know you have arrived. The Respite staff will meet you to receive the meal. Please plan to bring breakfast between 8:00-8:30 AM, lunch right around noon, and dinner at 4 PM. Dave has recently completed a Serve Safe training specific to COVID 19, he is recommending that dinners moving forward be "semi-prepared" or able to be reheated in the oven. He is also recommending if you are bringing salad or vegetables to bring a pre-packaged salad mix or the whole vegetables that can be washed, cut and prepared at respite. Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you so much for your support now and always! With gratitude, Hannah

Hello Companions! We were overwhelmed with gratitude. Not even 24 hours after posting the last update you all responded and filled the first week! If you have been to Haywood Street you know that we give love and receive most often love through a plate of food, thank you for saying yes to this ministry over and over again. We could not do this ministry without each of you! The address is 435 Smokey Park Hwy, Asheville, NC 28806. When you arrive, go to the left and follow the signs that say "registration." Pull into the loading zone and feel free to park for the moment. You can either call Michael at (828.337.0062) and let him know you are there with the meal, or you can just leave it at the desk and they will call up to the staff room. We have condiments and disposables for each person, so if you do not have individualized food, don't sweat it, we have you covered! Please let me know if you have any remaining questions. You can either respond to me here, email me at hannah@haywoodstreet.org or text me at 208.553.1744 All of my gratitude, Hannah

Reopening Respite!

Posted Apr 3, 2020 by Hannah Neitzey of Haywood Street Respite

Hello companions and friends! Respite is reopening! We have offered to shelter 9 of our most vulnerable friends experiencing homelessness for the duration of this crisis. In order to reopen as safely as possible, we will be moving into a hotel for two weeks for a quarantine period. Without access to the communal kitchen, we are seeking support from the community to feed respite residents breakfast, lunch, and dinner for at least 14 days. This can be homemade or purchased from the various drive-through, to-go restaurants in the area. Of course, we ask that you follow all precautions to keep yourself and the community as safe as possible when preparing or ordering food. If you are not able to prepare a meal, or purchase and deliver a to-go option for the community but would be willing to donate toward respite meals please visit https://haywoodstreet.kindful.com/ and allocate the donation to Haywood Street Respite.

Hello Everyone I hope this finds everyone well. These are some strange times. It is safe to assume that there will be a lot of sickness in our community and town for the time to come. It is so hard to know how bad things will get. I hope everyone will take care to ensure your own health is good. We will be closing Respite for several weeks. Things seem to change daily but we have decided that we won't need meals for Friday night March 20th until Monday, April 13th. We want to keep staff, companions and friends safe and healthy. I will continue to give updates as time goes on. Thank you to all for your love and support. We will continue to pray for all of those in our community that they will stay health and well. Please feel free to reach out to me if there are any questions. Peace and Joy Michael

Hello Everyone We are in a challenging time. It seems daily things are changing because of the COVID-!9 virus. It is affecting Haywood Street and our ministries. Our main concern is for the safety and well being of everyone in our community. The church will closed for the next couple weeks at least. There are may more questions that we still need to address. Respite will still offer a safe place for friends who have a illness or injury and need time off the street. We will still need dinners for friends staying here. We do not want to place anyone in harms way. I encourage everyone who has signed up for dinners to make choices to protect themselves. If you are concerned about your health and bringing dinners to Respite, we understand. Please don't feel that you have bring dinner. If you want to bring dinner and just drop it at the front door that would work. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 828-575-2477 ex. 102. Thank you all for everything you do to support Respite. I feel like this is the beginning of a conversation that will continue. Please be safe and take care of yourself. Peace and Joy Michael

Hello Everyone I hope everyone is having a good summer. The meals have been so wonderful. Our friends staying here have enjoyed them so much. Living on the street, they don't get many home cooked meals. Next Saturday, we have our covenant meal. It is a time when friends who have stayed at Respite in the past can come back and share a meal. Kerri Pelz was making those meals for us but she is now on staff at Respite. She has been kind enough to make the last two meals while we figure out how to cover those meals. It is twice a month. We feed about 25 people. It has been going on for years and I am hoping we don't have to discontinue them. If anyone feels they can help with a meal on August 10th that would be so nice. Please feel free to call me and we can talk. I am at Respite Monday through Friday, 8-4. My number is 828-575-2477 ex. 102. We also have some opens coming up for the regular meals at night. August 4th: Sunday August 9th: Friday August 10th Saturday August 13th: Tuesday I can not thank all of you enough for supporting Respite with these meals. It means a lot and makes a big difference.

We have some open dates next week: Monday--July 15th Wednesday--July 17th Friday--July 19 Sunday--July 21 If anyone can help us out with a meal that would be wonderful. The Covenant Meal that we do twice a month, is a wonderful part of our community. It is a time when friends who have stayed with us can come back and share a meal. It happens the second and fourth Saturday of every month. We have been fortunate in the past to have had individuals that were willing to take on this ministry. It is a big undertaking and I was wondering if there were people willing to commit to doing the Saturday meal, like once every three months. It is bigger then our nightly meals. We would need enough food for about 20 people. The meal happens at 1:00 on Saturday. I just wanted to start a conversation. Please email mail me if your might be interested or have any ideas how best for us to continue. My email is: michael@haywoodstreet.org. Thank everyone for all the great meals we have had. It means a lot to our friends staying with us to have such incredible food. Peace and Joy Michael

Hello Everyone They will begin working on our new floors on Monday June 17th. Slowly we are working to make Respite a place that feels more like a home. We are hoping the new floors will add a sense of warmth to Respite. We have been told it will take 10 days. So we are hoping to re open on June 26th. We generally offer friends a two week stay but now we are offering only shorter stays. There are still plenty of friends that can benefit from a week or so off the streets. The meals we have been getting have been wonderful. It means so much to our friends to get a home cooked meal and be able to eat as much as they want. Thanks to everyone for been so generous and kind. We do have two open days before we close. June 7th-Friday June 8th-Saturday. If anyone can help with these that would be great.

Covenant Meal

Posted Feb 15, 2019 by michael platz

Hello Everyone Thank you all for all the delicious meals you have prepared for Respite. It means so much to our friends to get them. We are a community. In 5 years we have had 777 friends pass through Respite. We maintain that once you have stayed at Respite you will always be a part of our community. Twice a month we do a Covenant Meal and invite friends who have stayed with us to come back and eat. It is the second and fourth Saturday of every month. We have been very fortunate to have had Ron Watson and Barry Walker prepare these meals. The meals have been incredible. Due to life changes, they are no longer able to make the meals. Starting in March we will need help covering these meals. We have put the two meals on Meal Train for March. The meals are at 1:00 on Saturday. Second and Fourth. We need to prepare enough for about 25 people. It seems like a lot to ask of one person. I would be glad for any thoughts and insight you have about how to make this work. One thing I thought about was having different people prepare a protein, a vegetables and a desert. But I am very open to suggestions. Feel free to email me at michael@haywoodstreet.org. Peace and joy Michael

Hello Everyone There is no way I can start a letter to you without saying thank you. The meals have been incredible. Unless you have stayed, it is hard to understand what it means to our friends to get your meals. They lives our friends lead, do not lend themselves being able to get the quality and variety of food that you have provided. Many things go into the experience our friends have here at Respite. But we believe that sharing a meal is so important. There has been a question recently abut the number of people at Respite, who will be there for the meal that night. . We stay full or close to full all the time. Last year 193 people came and stayed with us. Everyday is different here. We have asked for enough food for 15 people. It maybe that we only have 6 people and not 8. But they could have a friend or two join us. We plan for 4 staff members. So 15 seems to cover for all situations. There was also a concern with food going to waste. Most days when I come in there is nothing left from the meal the night before. But if there is, our friends eat it the next day. There is very little food that gets wasted at Respite. Please feel free to call the day that you are preparing a meal and the staff member who is on can give you an exact count. The number here is 828-575-2477 ex. 102. Thank you again for all you do. We could not be who we are without you. Peace and Joy Michael

This week

Posted Aug 20, 2018 by michael platz

Hello Everyone Hannah will be gone for a couple of weeks, so I am sending out our needs. First of all, thank everyone so much for the meals you have done and the commitment you have to respite. It means a great deal to our friend staying with us to get a meal every night. Life on the streets can be so hard. The simple joy of sitting and eating together is wonderful. It is very healing physically and emotionally. Please join us when you bring a meal. It is about so much more then just food to sit at the table with friends. This week we need help with Thursday night, August 23rd and Friday night, August 24th. If you have any questions, you can email me at michael@hayeoodstreet.org or call me at respite 828-575-2477 ex 102. Peace and joy Michael

April dates added and a few more announcements!

Posted Feb 26, 2018 by Emily Bentley

Hello Respite Companions! I've got a few announcements regarding Respite meals. - Our companion providing dinner this Friday is hoping to switch dates with someone. Is anyone willing to switch their March date for Friday, March 2nd? Or is anyone willing to take that date on? I've opened it up on the calendar for someone to sign up. - April dates are now added to the calendar! Please sign up if you can help. We also still have quite a few dates open in March. - Don't forget to log in and update your menu! One of the reasons we decided to use Meal Train for scheduling is so our companions can tell us what they plan to bring so we don't repeat too many menus throughout the week for our friends staying in Respite. Thank you all for how you serve Respite! -Emily Bentley
