Smoky Mountain Children's Home
 "Secret Santa" Auction

The Santa Family Reunion has chosen Smoky Mountain Children's Home in Sevierville, TN to be our sponsored Charity for 2019.      

ON DECEMBER 17, 1920, four young children were placed in a small frame house in Cleveland, Tennessee, in the care of Lillian Kinsey. This home was eventually named Orphanage Number One and thus was born the Church of God's ministry to homeless children. From the humble beginning, the number of children in care quickly increased.  In 1949, the orphanage relocated to Sevierville, Tennessee, on property formerly occupied by the Church of God Bible Training School. As the needs of children in placement changed, the structure of care also changed. Foster family care and residential treatment centers replaced the large, institutional program of care. 

Smoky Mountain Children's Home is a private, faith based, not-for-profit agency which exists to provide care, love, and healing to children and youth who have no one else to advocate or care for them. This mission is mandated by the Word of God in James 1:27 (NLT), “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you."  

Their primary purpose is to provide exceptional care for at-risk children and teens through our Residential and Foster Care programs. Through family counseling, individual therapy, educational opportunities and structured group living, the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home provides a continuum of care tailored for each resident's need. Creating a safe and supportive environment allows residents to discover their talents and build on their strengths.  This is accomplished by the excellent care of a trained staff and provides each resident the opportunity to overcome the circumstances of their past, while exploring a world of opportunity for their future.
