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.
