Financial Assistance

Thanks to the support of generous donors to our annual campaign, the Y offers financial assistance based on need and available funds.

Contact the Buncombe County Child Care Services Subsidy Unit or the McDowell County Child Care Services Subsidy Unit for voucher services. Subsidy is not available at all locations. Call the Y Business Center at 828-251-5910 for locations that accept subsidy vouchers.

The Y-Access financial assistance program provides funds based on available resources. Assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are available at the Y Business Center at 40 North Merrimon Ave., Suite 301, Asheville, NC or below.

Applicants must first apply for the subsidy/voucher program through the Buncombe or McDowell County Child Care Services Subsidy Unit, if applicable. Applicants must also be working a minimum of 30 hours per week or be a full-time student.
