"The Joy Center is a thriving, safe environment where thousands of struggling LGBTQ people are impacted and find hope and new life, achieving financial and personal freedom."
The mission of Joy Center Asheville is to create and administer a building complex that provides high quality housing for displaced or homeless LGBTQ People and provides programs, training and social services resources through its common Community Center. Joy Center Asheville will offer services and programs to both "live-in" and "walk-in" individuals with the goal of providing tools for a successful future.
While the project is administered by a "Faith Based" organization, Jesus People Church of Asheville, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, no faith or belief requirement is required to access Joy Center housing or services.
Jesus People Church is a LGBTQ Affirming and Inclusive Ministry
