• 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.

Share Your Time and Talents with the Children at Black Mountain Home

If you care about children and would like to help us provide a safe, loving home in which they can grow, learn, and thrive, then we invite you to join our wonderful volunteer team. There’s an opportunity for everyone to contribute – individuals, groups, adults, youth, professionals, and novices — come share your time and talent at Black Mountain Home.

Volunteer opportunities range from pulling weeds to office administrative support and construction projects. One of our ongoing needs is for tutors who can commit to regular times with our youth. We also are looking for groups that can tackle general maintenance projects.
