About Our Auction

Our annual Fall Festival on Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. offers free games for kids, live music, entertainment, food sales, a car show, and a silent auction of 200+ items. Our on-line auction includes a sampling of items to give bidders a head start. The on-line auction ends at midnight on Wednesday, October 5. Bids will then be transferred to our live auction which ends promptly at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 8. Being the high bidder at the end of the on-line auction doesn't guarantee you won't be outbid at the live auction, so make your BEST offer or take advantage of the Buy Now option! All funds raised go to the Home's Every Day Fund, meeting the daily needs of the more than 100 children served each year.

About Black Mountain Home for Children

Black Mountain Home was begun in 1904 as Mountain Orphanage in Haywood County, NC. Outgrowing the small cabin in which it was housed, the ministry moved to a farm in Henderson County in 1910. The Home originally provided safety and security for children whose parents had died or disappeared.

In 1922, a 135-acre tract of farm was purchased at the current site of our ministry. In 1923, the new orphanage location opened on the top a knoll overlooking the mountains. In the 1990s the children moved out of their dormitory-style building into individual family-style cottages.

Today, we provide physical, emotional, and academic support to youth from birth through early adulthood and beyond through:

- Community-based foster care
- Residential cottage-care
- Transitional living and life skills coaching for teens
- Independent living and on-campus apprenticeship program for young adults
- Lifelong living for youth with special needs that will need support in adulthood.
