• 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.

How to Help

DonationsWhen you entrust us with your resources, we take our responsibility seriously to be the best stewards possible. We will prayerfully use your gifts to further our mission of glorifying God by caring for children and families. OUR PROMISE – We will NEVER rent, sell, or share your personal information with any other company or organization for any reason.

Black Mountain Home depends upon regular contributions from individuals and groups to meet the Every Day Fund goal of $1 million annually. Whether you can give Solomon’s riches or a widow’s mite, every dollar helps make a difference in the lives of children.

Collecting Items for Black Mountain Home

DonationsMany groups like to collect specific items that BMH uses in quantity, like sheets, towels, paper goods, pillows, socks, cleaning supplies, batteries, school/arts and crafts supplies, and toiletries.

Used Items

Black Mountain Home does accept certain gently used items, including furniture, vehicles, household goods, and tools. Items that we cannot use will be sold through our thrift store or passed on to a non-profit organization with a similar mission.
