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. We are committed to providing shelter that meets a person's basic needs in an atmosphere where people are treated with dignity and respect.

Adopting A Child for the Christmas Holiday
While you celebrate and give thanks for what you have in your own life, consider aiding those who are less fortunate.
Bartlett House's Adopt a Child Program matches children in need with individual and/or corporate sponsors who "adopt" them for the holidays.
You will receive a child's profile and wish list. Using their information, you do the shopping and deliver items to the Bartlett House and on Christmas morning, the child you adopt will be able to open the presents you provided. By sponsoring a child, you too can help make the holidays truly blessed and spread cheer to others.
There are currently 16 children being served by the Bartlett House. Of those 16 children there are still 12 children needing to be adopted.
Year after year, The Bartlett House Adopt-A-Child program offers the gifts of hope, encouragement and caring to those needing it most.
Join in the season of giving by becoming a Family Sponsor! Call Doris Pirlo, Operations Manager at 304-292-0101.
Thanksgiving at The Bartlett House
The Bartlett House would like to acknowledge and thank all of the community volunteers that assisted with dinner on Thanksgiving Day. This annual tradition has been well served over the years by a number of great volunteers who commit time, energy, and a wonderful spirit of giving to not only our residents, but also to anyone from the community. It is our hope to see all involved return again in the future.
