• 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.

Making Christmas special for 100+ children takes a lot of planning and a lot of HELP from people like you. Each year, our children are asked to make a list of gifts they would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning. Then, we rely on generous donors like you to help us make sure that each wish-list is filled.

Choose the way that is best for you:

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. Buy 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


3. Shop for one or more children. **Note: Since the deadline has passed for “adopting” our children, please consider making a financial donation or shopping from our Amazon Wish List. This will help us make sure that children who are placed with us between now and Christmas have the same special experience on Christmas morning. Please call Loretta at 828-686-3451, if you have any question!
