Welcome to the Bartlett House website!
Bartlett House addresses homeless issues on several levels. first by providing for emergency food, shelter and medical referrals; second by providing one-to-one comprehensive case management; and third by providing transitional and permanent supportive housing. All programs aim to break the cycle of homelessness by providing its residents with the tools and resources needed to maintain stable, permanent housing, economic responsibility, independence and self sufficiency.

Non-Profit of the Year Award 2014
Morgantown Area Chamber of Commerce has selected Bartlett House as the Non-Profit of the Year for 2014.
Bartlett House feels very fortunate and is honored to receive the non-profit of the year award. Keri DeMasi Chief Executive Officer of Bartlett House has stated, “To have received the non-profit of the year award from the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce; there is no greater honor.”

In order to combat this, Bartlett House has opened a 20-unit fully furnished apartment building for formerly homeless individuals. The downtown homeless shelter is currently at capacity serving homeless individuals in the area.
