• 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.

Store and Cafe CLOSED

Wow–what a challenging few weeks! We’ve closed the Mountain Home Thrift Store: Cheryl’s Place as well as Thirteen Pennies Cafe for the time being. Many of our support staff are working from home while house parents are teaching, feeding, and keeping lots of kids occupied and entertained. We’ve also cancelled our spring events.

We SO appreciated everyone who has reached out to support us during this time. Everyone is facing unique challenges these days, but it’s been wonderful to see people come together to take care of one another as well. If you’d like to help us make up lost revenue due to closing the store and cafe as well as cancelling events, please click on the DONATE button. With God’s help we’re going to keep taking care of kids no matter what!

Stay well, wash your hands, and keep praying.
