Parent Next Door is a newly founded 501c3 nonprofit organization incorporated in North Carolina. We provide single family housing in a communal setting for qualifying mothers who are willing to participate in a babysitting cooperative, and receive financial training geared toward home ownership. Parent Next Door owns four adjacent single-family townhomes which share a fenced-in backyard to make one large play area for their children. Our mothers assist one another with childcare, engage in monthly group meetings, and regularly convene with a caseworker and financial advisor.
Parent Next Door identifies our participants through local women homeless shelters who use Emergency Shelter Vouchers and the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Mothers coming from shelters are eager to join because they desire to live within a supportive community and perceive Parent Next Door as a further healing home. The mothers referred through Asheville's Housing Choice Voucher Program struggle balancing motherhood and career and desire the companionship
and the many other benefits encompassed in communal living. Parent Next Door's supportive community, parenting and financial training, plus the potential to become a homeowner, is a dream come true.
Parent Next Door's mission is to provide supportive services to single parents within a communal environment and raise them out of poverty. The friendships that our participants foster will be life transforming for them and their children. Our children will benefit growing up in a communal environment which allows for the sharing of tangible resources as well as a pool of parenting skills. It will be the Parent Next Door participants who ultimately hold one another accountable and on track to succeed. Support and friendships are paramount to a person's mental health and wellbeing, and this is what Parent Next Door offers our participants.
Parent Next Door is proud to announce that we are land owners in West Asheville and we NOW have the opportunity to build 12 homes plus a community center for single parents and their children. Please contribute either through PayPal or by sending a check to our offices:
