About Us

The Marjorie McCune Community is a licensed Adult Care Home owned and operated by the Lions of Western North Carolina. Located in Black Mountain, North Carolina, the center is nestled in the Swannanoa Valley of Buncombe County in a country setting.

Our staff provides residents with quality care while encouraging independence. Many residents are no longer able to live alone or may need help from time to time. At the Marjorie McCune Community, we believe residents can enjoy life with dignity.

For those who live at the Marjorie McCune Community, life is simply an extension of their own lives. Our residents are able to spend time with their families, friends, and neighbors, in a setting that says “Welcome Home”.

Originally intended to accommodate the visually impaired, the Marjorie McCune Community has become home to any persons with disabilities or inabilities to manage everyday life on their own. Our staff is well trained to accommodate many types of needs.

Our History


The Majorie McCune Community began in the 1970s when Marjorie McCune, the first blind social worker in Buncombe County, approached Lions in Western North Carolina with a dream. That dream was that visually impaired individuals have a place to receive long term care in a beautiful environment. Lions in Western North Carolina agreed to make her dream come true.

Originally intended to accommodate the visually impaired, the Majorie McCune Community has become home to many persons with various needs of assistance.
