• 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.



We are humbled and honored when families choose Black Mountain Home for Children as the suggested recipient of their loved one’s memorials.

To make a memorial gift, simply include the deceased person’s name and the name and address of the person you would like notified in the form below. We will let them know of your kindness.

Your support means the world to the AT-PROMISE children entrusted to our care.  From newborns who have been exposed to drugs before birth to older youth who need a home and family after the age of 18 – THANK YOU for helping our children experience FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE!
