A Few Words About…


Foundations Asheville is a young adult transition community located in the mountains of North Carolina.

The program serves young adults age 18-24 who are looking to acquire the tools to make the transition from adolescence to life as an independent adult. Foundations helps young adults aspire to find meaning, direction, relationships, and self-reliance in their lives.

At Foundations, we strive to create a full and rewarding life through an individualized combination of education, vocation training, community service, healthy lifestyle skill, relationship building, and participation in a genuine community of peers.


Whether students are looking to get their high school diploma, further their secondary education, learn a trade, or find an internship at a local Asheville business to help them gain career experience, we can help our students select the right path that will fit their needs.


The young adults served by Foundations Asheville come to the program with a wide variety of experience and a myriad of goals, but are interested in actively working toward a greater degree of independence in their daily lives.

Our team partners with young adults to establish viable goals. Then, we work side-by-side with the each individual to support and encourage the realization of those goals.
