• Welcome to Black Mountain Home

    Begun by Presbyterian minister Robert Perry Smith in 1904 as Mountain Orphanage, the Home began its ministry taking in Appalachian children whose parents had died or disappeared. Today, the ministry serves youth from birth through college graduation through family foster care, residential care, transitional living, and independent living.

Black Mountain Home held it’s first Community Partner meeting for businesses interested in partnering with our new Apprenticeship Program on April 27, 2017. Hospitality, construction, workforce development, and recreation-related businesses were represented. If you’d like to learn how your business can partner with the children’s home in providing older youth with an alternative to a traditional education, contact Elodie Covert at 828-581-0701 or ecovert@blackmountainhome.org.
