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 provides quality free temporary care to participants in our Drop-In program 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. The MotherLove program helps pregnant and parenting teens stay in school, access higher education and vocational training, develop the skills and knowledge needed to become strong parents and delay another teen pregnancy.
