• 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.

Cancelled Events + Generous Donors

Like so many organizations we’ve cancelled quite a few events due to the cornavirus pandemic. Cancelled events include:

  • The Bear Cub Classic Golf Tournament – April 17 (may be rescheduled)
  • Swing Into Spring- April – April 25
  • Bloomin’ Plant Sale – May 6-9
  • Alumni Reunion – July 11

We’re sad not to be connecting with friends and supporters at our events, but we’re so grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve seen during this challenging time. From folks dropping off paper products, cleaning supplies, and games on our front porch to donors who have given to help offset lost event revenue, we’ve been blessed.

As the country moves cautiously toward re-opening, we’re making decisions about future events as well as looking at when we can open the doors at the Mountain Home Thrift Store: Cheryl’s Place and the Thirteen Pennies Cafe. Of course, the safety of our youth, staff, and supporters is always paramount. We’ll keep you posted and look forward to seeing you on our campus once again.
