Our team at Smoky Vistas is proud to announce its support for the important and life-changing work of the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home.

Smoky Mountain Children’s Home is a private, faith-based, non-profit, multi-service agency that provides care, love, and healing to at-risk children and youth who have no one else to advocate or care for them. A continuum of trauma-informed programs is offered to meet the unique, individual needs of children and to strengthen their family’s system, regardless of age, capacity, race, and creed.

“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.”

— James 1:27

On December 17, 1920, four young children were placed in a small frame house in Cleveland, Tennessee, in the care of its first “matron,” Lillian Kinsey. Today the SMCH creates a safe and supportive environment that allows residents to discover their talents and build on their strengths. This is accomplished by the excellent care of trained staff and provides each resident the opportunity to overcome the circumstances of their past while exploring a world of opportunity for their future.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of its founding. Please join us in celebration at the Centennial Christmas dinner on December 17th at the Sevierville Convention Center. Complimentary tickets are available for any Smoky Vistas homeowner. Please call Pamela Kay Overbey at 865-453-4644 ext. 118 for tickets.

There will be an auction to support the worthy and necessary work at the Children’s Home and Smoky Vistas has pledged a four-day vacation in rustic comfort at one of our Smoky Mountain cabin.
