• WELCOME TO BLACK MOUNTAIN HOME – Begun in 1904 as Mountain Orphanage, the Home began its ministry taking in children whose parents had died or disappeared. Today, we serve youth from birth through college graduation and beyond through family foster care, residential care, transitional living, and independent living.


See below for how YOU can help make it special!

Holidays are especially difficult for children in foster care. That’s why we make sure our youth have bountiful meals, fun activities, and gifts from their individual Christmas wish-list!

Making Christmas special for ~100 children takes a lot of planning and a lot of HELP from donors, businesses, and churches. Each year, our staff helps each child make a wish-list of age-appropriate items they would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning. Then, we rely on generous donors to help us make sure that each wish-list is filled.

Easy Ways You Can Make Christmas Special:

1. Sponsor Christmas for one or more children:

You can make Christmas special for one or more children through your donation of $200 per child at www.BlackMountainHome.org/donate. Christmas fund donations of ANY amount help provide meals, activities, and Christmas gifts to youth, from newborns to college-age. Click here to donate to our Christmas Fund


2. Bought gifts online at our Christmas Wish-List on Amazon.

Items purchased from our Amazon wish-list can be shipped directly to our office. If you wish to purchase items on our list from other stores, you can have them shipped to Black Mountain Home Christmas, 80 Lake Eden Rd., Black Mountain, NC 28711. Click here to See our Christmas Wish-List
