Who We Are

The YWCA of Asheville shatters barriers and bridges gaps.

The YWCA of Asheville is YOUR community center. Whether you are looking for a comfortable workout facility, somewhere safe to bring your children, or a compassionate listener who will help guide you through a rough time, we welcome you.

The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women. We offer programs that bridge gaps in education, health care, child care and earning power. These programs include a Child Care Center, School-Age Program (After-School and Summer Camp), MotherLove (mentoring for teen moms), New Choices (support for displaced homemakers), Preventive Health/Diabetes Wellness, Aquatics and the YWCA Club W Fitness Center.

The YWCA has been in Asheville since 1906. We serve approximately 7,400 people a year.
