About Us

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.


Supported Structure For Growth

The structure of the Foundations Asheville’s programming and the breadth of the program’s experiential and educational tracks are grounding.

Foundations empowers its clients to explore life and engage in new experiences designed to provide meaning and perspective. During their tenure at Foundations, it is not uncommon that clients become passionate about a new hobby or develop a long-term goal.

With therapeutic and academic supports in place, some students find renewed interest in traditional education, and all students find goals they are excited to work toward as they become self-reliant.


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.


We are here to help our students grow in a supportive environment. Our dedicated staff and mentors create a positive environment for growth where we can help build upon a student’s current strengths and develop any areas of their life where they may need help.

Finding the Right Fit

At Foundations Asheville, we strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for our current and future students. To ensure this, Foundations does not serve students with ongoing and active addiction issues, severe and persistent mental illness, or significant pervasive developmental disorders.
