• WELCOME TO BLACK MOUNTAIN HOME – Begun by Rev. Robert Perry Smith 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.


Holidays are especially difficult for children in foster care. That’s why we make sure our youth have bountiful meals, fun activities, and gifts from their own special Christmas wish-list!

Making Christmas special for over 75 children takes a lot of planning and a lot of HELP from donors, businesses, and churches. In October, our staff helps each child make their own special wish-list with age-appropriate items they would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning.

Then, we rely on generous donors to help us make sure that each wish-list is filled.

Ways that You can help Make Christmas Special:

1. Sponsor Christmas for one or more children:

You can make Christmas special for one or more children through your donation of $200 per child at www.BlackMountainHome.org/donate. Christmas fund donations of ANY amount help provide meals, activities, and Christmas gifts to youth, from newborns to college-age.

Donate to the Christmas Fund
