Asheville Young Adult Volunteers meet challenges of a growing city

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, picturesque Asheville, North Carolina, is a frequent tourist destination known for its hospitality, arts, great restaurants and breweries. Consistently ranked as one of America’s best places to live, the growth of the 86,000-person community has also been accompanied by the challenges that face many other expanding cities, and Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteers (YAVs) are there to learn and help meet these needs.
