Community Programs and Special Initiatives
Counseling at Church of the Advocate
Made possible by Church of the Advocate grant funding, ASCC provides individual counseling services by appointment for parishioners one day per week. The Church of the Advocate is dedicated to serving the homeless, the vulnerable, and the street people of Asheville and Buncombe County.
Mental Health Care for Victims of Crime
In 2018, ASCC received a 2-year grant from the Governor’s Crime Commission to provide accessible mental health care for crime victims who are underinsured or uninsured, including victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. ASCC is grateful to be able to provide this crucial service to the WNC community.
