From the "Pioneers" that began settling in at Givens in the spring of 1979, to the newest members of our engaging community of like-minded souls, it is our residents that truly define the character of this Asheville retirement home. And this character becomes further enriched every time a new set of experiences and life journeys is folded into our mix.
This community was founded on a shared dream to make available everything Givens has to offer to any and every interested person regardless of race, creed, or financial standing. An uncommon dream that came true as soon as the first set of moving boxes was opened for unpacking. And a dream that genuinely holds true to this day.
We encourage you to learn more about our community through the perspectives of these ambassadors. Watch the videos available on this page to hear their sincere words and first-hand experiences at Givens. If you like what they have to say, we encourage you to come to this unique Asheville retirement home and shake hands and share smiles with them during a scheduled visit.
