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.
We also welcome members of COM, ROAM, SOWERS, and other Resident Volunteer Associations to volunteer while staying in our Legacy RV Park. The park has 16 full hookup (20, 30, and 50 amps) camp sites, as well as a beautiful lodge with a screened-in rocking chair porch, wood fireplace, laundry room, full kitchen, and his/hers showers.
