     The St. John’s Home for Children is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established as an orphanage on February 21, 1856 by Bishop Richard Whelan and the Sisters of St. Joseph.

     We are located on 5 acres of land, nestled in the hills of Wheeling, WV. We are approximately 50 miles southwest of Pittsburgh, PA. The St. John’s Home for Children provides an twelve-bed Residential Level II facility for boys age 8 to 14 who primarily present with behavioral or emotional difficulties, and/or are victims of abuse and neglect. We also work very closely with families. We primarily serve Region I of the State of WV and in particular the Northern Panhandle counties of WV, but will accept youth from out of the Region on a case-by-case basis.

     We are licensed by the State of West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources (WV DHHR) and by the Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification (OHFLAC). We are also nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation.

     The St. John’s Home for Children is funded in part under an agreement with the Bureau for Children and Families, West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources; and the federal Medicaid program via the WV Office of Behavioral Health. We also receive significant funding from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. The St. John's Home for Children is a member of the West Virginia Child Care Association.
