• 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.

A safe, comfortable place to sleep at night.

Every child should have a bed to call their own.
The children who live at our home have faced difficult circumstances in their short lives. Many have lived in poverty and other dire conditions, without the comforts that most of us take for granted. Now safe in our care, we are committed to providing homes and beds that are as welcoming and comfortable as what we would want for our own children.
This spring, we began a campaign to replace some of the beds that were very worn and urgently needed replacing. However, after further reflection, we realized that we need to replace the beds and mattresses for all of our children.
You can help. Because the beds must meet specifications stipulated by the state, they are somewhat expensive – the cost for each new bed, foundation, and mattress is $1,300, with a total cost of $114,400 for all 88 of our children’s beds.
We are grateful for the generous donations that we have received already! Each gift, no matter the size, helps us provide a secure place for children to rest their heads at night. A comfortable bed is a must for a good night’s rest, helps reduce their anxiety and improves academic performance, and is a dignity that many of our children may have never experienced before.
