About Us

Bartlett House, Inc. was founded in 1985 as a nonprofit organization to meet the needs of the homeless population in Monongalia County, West Virginia and surrounding areas. Since 1990, Bartlett House has been housed at 1110 University Avenue in Morgantown, WV - open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The shelter can house up to 72 men, women and children. In 2012, Bartlett House opened up a second facility on West Run Road to provide Permanent housing to 16 chronically homeless individuals. In 2016, Bartlett House completed the final Phase of the West Run Project and opened it's doors to the 36-bed transitional program.


In West Virginia the problem of homelessness has become more obvious in recent years. There is no easy way to prdict who will be next. Experience has shown us that there are two basic types of homelessness: Crisis Poverty and Chronic Homelessness. Many factors may have contributed not only to making these persons homeless. Major personal crisis, unemployment, lack of affordable housing - but also to creating barriers to alleviating the situation. Mental illness, substance abuse, chronic disability. Regardless of the reason, the key is to provide quick and appropriate intervention that deals with both a person's basic emergency needs, as well as long-term isses - to start them on their journey to self-sufficiency and independence!
