• 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.

Below are some ways you can help with either in-kind donations or volunteering. If you’d like to learn more, call us at 828-686-3451 or e-mail info@blackmountainhome.org. Thanks for helping us glorify God by caring for children and families!
