Like a lot of people fresh out of college, Hannah Kaminer found herself a little lost. So she left a life and teaching job in Waco, Tex. to return where she grew up. Her parents had divorced, so without a family home awaiting her in Black Mountain, she moved in with friends in Asheville.
“I mean, I loved teaching, but without community and connections, it’s really hard to live in a place,” Kaminer said.
