The Guardian Ad Litem program in Jackson, Swain, and Macon counties is seeking volunteers to help abused and neglected children as they work their way through the court system.

Most volunteers spend four to six hours per month on a particular child’s case, which includes learning about the child’s situation, talking to the child, caregivers, professionals and others involved in the child’s life. The program requires 30 hours of training.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
