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.

APR10 Feinstein Fundraiser
FEINSTEIN CHALLENGE 2013
STOCK OUR SHELVES!
For every donation (cash or food) Bartlett House receives from March 1st to April 30th, the Feinstein Foundation will match a portion of what we raise. I am calling upon our community members to help us raise monies for the homeless individuals and families in Morgantown and its surrounding areas. This is the seventh year that Bartlett House will be partnering with Mr. Feinstein in his challenge to end hunger in our country. Last Year's campaign was a huge success. We raised $20, 872 in cash and close to $16,323 in food contributions. Because of the food items we received during this challenge, Bartlett House had a stocked food pantry throughout the year.
In years past, we had "low periods". Last year, however, we remained stocked througout the year. We sincerely hope that with your help, we will exceed last year's numbers. I honestly feel the generous contributions received from individuals like you during last year's Feinstein Challenge contributed to that accomplishment. The monetary donations assisted us a great deal in purchasing much needed meat products and staples such as coffee, creamer, sugar and butter for the individuals and families that we serve.
Bartlett House has been serving the homeless since 1984. We pride ourselves on addressing the needs of the clients we serve to help them through the issues which contributed to their state of homelessness. While staying at Bartlett House, clients are provided meals, laundry facilities and comprehensive case management which promote self-sufficiency. As a result, any monetary donation and/or food will go a long way.
We have been extremely fortunate to have had the past support of those who donate. On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff and clients, we would sincerly appreciate anything you could contribute towards this campaign. We need your help: large or small, every dollar or food item counts. Thank you for your continued support and consideration! Together, we can help the homeless individuals and families in our community by providing one of life's most basic needs: food and nutrition.

E4p recently hosted a Valentines Day Party for the children at Bartlett House. They made valentines decorations, played games and enjoyed a pizza party.
