Hutton House Emergency Shelter for Families
The Hutton House was opened in 1988 and named after Rev. Bob Hutton (a past director) who had a dream to provide housing for the homeless.
Hutton House is now the largest homeless shelter in the Upper Ohio Valley, primarily funded by a HUD Emergency Shelter Grant administered by the Ohio Department of Development.
Focusing exclusively on homeless families, Hutton House is the only shelter which offers fully-furnished one- and two-bedroom apartments. Each family that enters the shelter receives an individual apartment that is completely furnished by donations. A family also receives cleaning supplies, personal care items and food. Upon entering the shelter each family receives personal case management, family and life skills training and referrals to other programs to help meet their needs.
Hutton House is a place that accepts people for where they are not for where we would like them to be a place to start over to rebuild, to learn the skills to help them cope a place to call home for a short period of time.
