Nurturing Children

The YWCA of Asheville wants to help families nurture and care for their children. The YW provides a licensed, 5-Star Child Care Center and School Age program (After School and Summer Camp), offering excellent learning enrichment, homework help, and recreation in a diverse supportive environment. To help working families afford our child care services, the YW participates in the NC Subsidized Child Care program.

Other families need short-term child care while the parent is working on their education, looking for a job, or otherwise seeking economic self-sufficiency. The YW’s Drop-In Child Care program provides quality free temporary care to participants in our New Choices or Club W Health & Fitness Center, and to participants in 17 other partner agency programs.

The YW also wants to help young families get a good start. MotherLove helps young women who are pregnant or parenting stay in school.
