Journey Home East, one of the country’s top programs for young adult women ages 16-21, specializes in providing a traditional home setting, along with positive peer and staff relationships that allows for students at Journey Home East to build the confidence they need to successfully transition back to a real-world setting.
Our program encompasses the Five Core Principles which we believe to be at the heart of what will help our young women live happy, productive lives. These principles we believe to be critical for a student to create lasting change and return home with the skills they need to succeed.
Located in Asheville, North Carolina we help young adult women from all over the country create personal success and achieve their goals.
Students at Journey Home East can choose to enroll in a local high school or college, or work at a local job. After school or work, students return to the home located in the thriving downtown of Asheville, NC with the other Journey Home East students and staff. They then take part in various activities to help build their skills and develop personal growth. Each student has a personal, individualized plan to help them build skills and discover interests specific to their likes and needs.
