| A Few Words About Us.
Our mission is to nurture an active, supportive community that provides choices, opportunities and encouragement for all children and families in Ashe County to become healthy, educated and self-reliant.
Ashe County is a prosperous community whose residents, especially children and families, are provided a broad range of resources, helping ensure their futures as productive individuals and the county’s future as a strong economic entity in a globally competitive world.
We were founded in 1995 to administer the Smart Start grant in Ashe County. Since that time we have expanded to include a domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and awareness program. We created Family Central in 1999 at the former Ashe Central High School.
