• 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.

James 1.27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans…. 


112th Annual Thanksgiving Offering

Materials for our 2020 Thanksgiving Offering are available below. Thank you for continuing to support this wonderful tradition at your church, business, or other!

To:          Our friends in Christ

From:    President Tom Campbell

Since January 1904, when our ministry began as the Mountain Orphanage, care for children in need has depended on Christian charity. Although over time our name changed to Black Mountain Home, our mission of glorifying God by caring for children and families remains the same.

For over 100 years, churches from Western North Carolina and beyond have collected an annual offering for the children entrusted to our care. We are so grateful that this wonderful tradition continues today. This year, we invite you to partner with us as we continue to answer God’s call to care for children.

Your support will help us as we strive to meet the needs of the overwhelming number of children in the foster care system. In just the last decade, our ministry has had to turn away more than 900 children ages six and under due to the shortage of foster families. With your support, we can continue to expand our ministry to take care of more children, from newborns to college age and beyond.

Like our founders, we are grounded in Christ’s call to care for orphans and like them, we continue to rely on God’s provision for the ministry. You have our deepest gratitude for considering this offering request. For your convenience, we have provided a link to suggested instructions, bulletin inserts, a mission moment, and posters below.

Please call the director of our liaison program, Sheryl Eller, at (828) 686-3451 if you need more information, envelopes or other supplies, or would like to have someone speak at your church. We look forward to hearing from you.

Black Mountain Home liaisons are individuals, churches, and other organizations who serve as partners in our ministry to take care of orphans and other children in need. If you would like to join hands with us to glorify God by caring for children and families, I would love to share more information with you about becoming a liaison in your church, business, and/or community.

Our liaisons make a tremendous difference in the world by helping abused, abandoned, and neglected children have security, love, and hope. Liaisons are critical members of our ministry team because they help us create awareness about the ministry, engage other people in our mission, and help us have the resources to meet the complex needs of the children entrusted to our care.

Please contact me if you would enjoy sharing information about Black Mountain Home with your church, business, or community, helping us recruit volunteers, and encouraging people to support our youth by providing welcome totes for new admissions, collecting change or other offerings, and praying for the ministry.
