Community groups find home at Eliada

Eliada is an innovative children's home serving youth daily in their residential treatment facility, day treatment school, and child development center. For the community of Asheville and the greater Western North Carolina region, Eliada not only serves children, but provides an open door policy for community groups and organizations to use our over 320-acre campus. The campus includes recreation facilities, outdoor space, and indoor meeting space.

Currently a range of groups benefit from Eliada's community-mindedness. Kia Rice plays on a basketball team that practices at Eliada's gym. When she and her teammates learned they'd have a space to practice, Kia says, "We were so excited! We are [now] able to meet up and practice before our games which has made us one of the better teams in [our] league."
