Our four-bedroom home, which is located on a quiet, safe street in the downtown area of Asheville, NC is perfectly suited to provide living assistance for young adults. We are within walking distance to local amenities and a variety of employment, volunteer and educational opportunities that enhance the independent living component of our program. The residents of Journey Home East will find yoga and dance studios, a rock climbing gym, a variety of locally owned shops and restaurants, the YMCA fitness center, the Pack Memorial Public Library, and The Fine Arts Theater within walking and biking distance.
When selecting an environment in which can properly provide living assistance for young adults, some of the things that we consider are not only to provide the girls with a safe environment where they can grow as people, but also a place that they will be happy living in. Asheville, which is nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, was the number one rated tourist destination according to Good Morning America in 2015. With a thriving arts, culture, music, and outdoor recreation scene Asheville has something for everyone to find their niche.
Along with a thriving culture, which helps to facilitate an amazing environment to provide living assistance for young adults, Asheville also offers a wide array of post-secondary education opportunities. Univeristy of North Carolina Asheville, Asheville-Buncombe Technical College, Warren Wilson College, and Mars Hill College are all within 25 minutes of downtown Asheville. Between these universities and a strong job market, there are plentiful opportunities to find a career path in Asheville.
