Founded in the early 1970′s, the House of the Carpenter began in an old victorian home on Wheeling Island. It worked to embody the words of Jesus about caring for the poor, the needy, the outcast and the forgotten. We have never forgotten that we are here to continue the work begun in Jesus Christ.
The House of the Carpenter provides a food pantry, thrift store, classes through WV Saves, home repair teams, utility assistance, summer camp, lessons in guitar and violin and helps families with gifts for children and youth. In the coming months, the ministry will be expanding to include classes designed to improve the lives of people.
Donations are always accepted and volunteers are always needed particularly as the ministry expands. If you would like to help sort dontations and work with the thrift store, learn to accept applications for utility assistance, work with Christmas kids, or help people in the food pantry, or work with the office duties, there is a space for you to help serve.
