• 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.

James 1.27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans…. 


Grove Stone Gallery Call for Artists

The Mountain Home Thrift Store: Cheryl’s Place provides jobs and training for youth in Black Mountain Home for Children’s apprenticeship program. It also provides income for the ministry as government funding continues to dwindle. Our Grove Stone Gallery features local art, handcrafts, jewelry, collectibles, and other items that are donated for us to sell at or near retail price. We’re able to draw attention to the incredible talent and generosity of artists in our area while also raising funds to support our children.

Paintings, pottery, jewelry, quilts, scarves, furniture, and other handcrafted items donated by local artisans help us provide a safe, loving home to more than 150 children each year.

To learn more about donating your handcrafted art in support of children in need, please contact:

Become a Liaison

Black Mountain Home liaisons are individuals, churches, and other organizations who serve as partners in our ministry to take care of orphans and other children in need. If you would like to join hands with us to glorify God by caring for children and families, I would love to share more information with you about becoming a liaison in your church, business, and/or community.

Our liaisons make a tremendous difference in the world by helping abused, abandoned, and neglected children have security, love, and hope. Liaisons are critical members of our ministry team because they help us create awareness about the ministry, engage other people in our mission, and help us have the resources to meet the complex needs of the children entrusted to our care.

Please contact me if you would enjoy sharing information about Black Mountain Home with your church, business, or community, helping us recruit volunteers, and encouraging people to support our youth by providing welcome totes for new admissions, collecting change or other offerings, and praying for the ministry.
