An aerial overview of St. John’s Home for Children Wheeling, WV

The St. John’s Home for Children Administration Building was built in the early 1900’s. It originally housed youth and Sisters of St. Joseph in its early years. Today it houses our Administrative Offices, Case Management office, Business Office, Counseling/Therapy room, Computer Center, Education Center and Training areas.

The Residential facility comfortably houses our youth. This one story building contains the youth bedrooms, as well as a kitchen, dining area, living area, laundry room, restroom areas, staff office.
Our new larger kitchen allows us to prepare homecooked meals for our youth and to also teach them such family responsibilities as doing dishes, cleaning the kitchen, and putting items away.
The dining area is where our youth and staff eat their meals in a relaxed family-style atmosphere. This also serves as an area for youth to do homework, as well as engage in fun activities such as board games, putting puzzles together, and drawing and coloring.
Our living area is a place for youth to relax. They may watch TV or movies and use the computer on a limited basis, and listen to music here. This area is also used for family-like house meetings with our youth.
Our youth bedrooms are single rooms which allows for increased safety, privacy and a place the child can call his own. Each youth is provided with his own bed, dresser drawers, and dresser to hang his clothes. Each child is encouraged to decorate his room to reflect his own tastes and culture, to have family pictures, and post personal achievements, as well as store his personal belongings in his bedroom.

Youth may enjoy a fun and relaxed time using our pool table, ping-pong table, foosball table, airhockey table weights, or just listen to the stereo. The Recreation Building also provides a place for the youth to visit with family when they come to visit him, and to enjoy fun family activities.

Our large Recreation Room in our new youth residence includes an air hockey game, foosball, table tennis as well as electronic games such as a Wii system. It provides youth with a place to learn skills such as how to positively interact with their peers, take turns, share, follow rules, and respect others and belongings as well as a place to have good old fashioned fun.
