• Reaching New Heights


Featured Neighborhood

Over a decade, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity will empower another 1,000 individuals and families in the region to improve their housing and build strong, stable futures by 2028. Read our FY23-25 Strategic Plan.

New Heights

New Heights is a multi-generational neighborhood located 6 miles from downtown Asheville (located off Old Haywood Road). Including single family homes, two-story townhomes, and single-level townhomes specifically designed for aging adults (55+), this neighborhood will be accessible to people in all stages of life; a place where 98 households of all ages and backgrounds will build strong, stable futures.

Construction will be broken into two phases. Phase 1 will include the construction of 38 homes. The first home began in spring of 2020 and the last one will close in 2023. Eight of these homes will be single-level townhomes specifically for aging adults, thanks to generous support from local retirement community, Deerfield. Funding from Deerfield and its newly formed Charitable Foundation includes a Full House Sponsorship ($55,000) on each of the 8 units, as well as $50,000 to research and develop senior-oriented house designs, financing options and HOA management. The first two Aging in Place units closed in October 2021. Learn more about this partnership.

Glenn Bridge

Habitat’s next neighborhood will be in the Southern part of Buncombe County, located between Glenn Bridge Road and Brevard Road. This community will be a total of 29 homes and a mixture of housing products including single family homes, townhomes, and Aging in Place homes. Construction on the first home is expected to begin May 2023.
