• 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.

Store and Cafe

In March 2020, the Mountain Home Thrift Store and Thirteen Pennies Cafe closed temporarily. Many of our support staff are working from home while house parents are teaching, preparing meals, and keeping lots of kids occupied and entertained. At this time, all of our spring fundraising events have been cancelled.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to check on us during this time. Your prayers, encouragement, and financial support are SO appreciated. It is wonderful to see people come together to take care of one another during these unusual times.

If you wish to help us make up revenue lost due to the closing our our store and cafe as well as cancelling our 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.
