Like other non-profits, the Bartlett House programs are funded through grants and the generous support of the community. If you have an idea for a fundraiser or would like to help with a fund raising effort, we welcome your participation. Please contact Doris Pirlo at 304-292-0101 or email to In the past we have had groups do bake sales, car washes, bucket brigades, concerts, dinners, cash bashes, silent auctions, running races, organizational collections and many other fund raising endeavors. These efforts are often greatly rewarding and fun for the participants. This is a great way for student organizations, civic groups, church organizations, and businesses to employ the power of team work.


General Volunteering

Volunteering at Bartlett House is very easy. Just call, email or come in and talk to our Volunteer Coordinator and he will take care of you. The Volunteer Coordinator is at the shelter from 9am-5pm. There is always something that needs done. If you feel you have a unique idea for your volunteer time, we would love to hear it. Please find below a list of suggested ways you can help us help the homeless.

Administrative Support

This job entails answering phones, reception, filing, data entry, hand writing notes, and other general office tasks.


Repair and Maintenance

Knowledge of carpentry, painting, electrical repair or plumbing would be desired for this volunteer position.



It is our desire to provide a clean and healthy environment for our clients. Sweeping, mopping, wiping down walls, dusting and other cleaning duties would fall into this category.



Bartlett House generates three to five loads of laundry per day (mostly bedding & towels). Having volunteers to complete this task is a great help!


Large or Bulk Item Transport

There are occasions when we need someone with a truck to transport large or bulk items such as appliances, furniture or food donations. We would like to compile a list of volunteers who would be willing to be “on call” to provide such transportation service when needed.






MAR19 Feinstein FundraiserPosted by Keri DeMasi

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 sixth 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 $35,892 in cash and close to $16, 115 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. Last year Feinstein Foundation’s match was $341.93. 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.

Aug9 Donations and Volunteers NeededPosted by Doris Pirlo


Bartlett House is able to provide such quality homeless services due to the generosity of resources and time that is given by the local community. From those who donate money and goods, to those who serve meals and share their hobbies and talents. For the homeless, a shelter can be as little as a place to sleep out of the rain or as much as a step toward self-sufficiency.


Volunteer opportunities are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For more information on how to donate time and/or money, call the Volunteer Coordinator at 304-292-0101 or email Robert martin at
