Who we are...

Hands and Feet of Asheville is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization rooted in the Presbyterian Church (USA) pairing young adults (21-29) with working experiences at local Western North Carolina non-profit partners making vital change in our community. This transformative experience is designed to walk alongside you during a time of change and uncertainty, helping you discern in your vocational and spiritual journeys. Becoming a Hands and Feet Program Fellow requires a willingness to engage in anti-racist and compassionate social justice, learning more about what living a life of service means for you. As a Fellow, you will explore what it looks like to live your values in the world, challenging racism, inequality, and environmental degradation, while sustaining your spirit and developing meaningful relationships. This is a program of personal, professional, and spiritual growth; as such, we welcome young adults grounded in any faith tradition, including no faith tradition, to explore and discern their individual calling, as they live together in intentional community. 

You are a good candidate if:

  • You are interested in living a life of compassionate service

  • You want the space, time, and support to further discern the path of your life

  • You wonder what it looks like to live your values in the world

  • You are spiritually curious and wish to engage with your faith journey

  • You are open to working and living with people different from yourself

  • You align with HFA’s values, listed below

  • You are a young adult aged 21 to 29
