Welcome to Friendship Force Western North Carolina (FFWNC)

Western North Carolina has so much to offer—hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, touring the Biltmore House in Asheville, enjoying Bluegrass music and  savoring southern cooking; these are just a few of the many unique experiences  you can enjoy here.

Our club welcomes people who enjoy travel, whether they travel singly, with a friend, or as a couple. We, in turn, offer those options to incoming club ambassadors who visit Western North Carolina.

Friendship Force provides unique opportunities to explore new countries and cultures from the inside by bringing people together at a personal level.  Our club was started 36 years ago, and since that time, members have traveled to over 25 countries and 13 states.  We have home hosted international travelers as well as many from the United States. By sharing a home, meals, conversation and everyday experiences, people become friends, seeing beyond governments and borders and into the heart of a country and its people.  By combining home hospitality with cultural exploration, we reach a new level of understanding.
