• 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.

Individuals, groups, children, adults, professionals, novices–all are invited to share your time and talents at Black Mountain Home. Volunteer opportunities range from pulling weeds to construction projects. Top on-going needs include individuals who can commit to regular tutoring (background checks required) and groups that can tackle general maintenance projects.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Jimmy Harmon at jharmon@blackmountainhome.org or call him at 828-686-3451 x139.
