Welcome to 85Z

Our Asheville Campus, affectionately referred to as “85Z,” is situated on four wooded acres at 85 Zillicoa Street near downtown and the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Our bright, airy four-story building boasts views of its old growth trees, rolling lawns, and gardens.

The Asheville campus offers twenty-four private rooms, a horticulture room, an art studio, woodshop, exercise facilities and space for outdoor activities and relaxation, including vegetable and herb gardens. Most Asheville campus residents spend a good amount of the week traveling around the area to community work sites and activities.
