About Us


The Home For Men is one of Wheeling’s “Best Kept Secrets” that provides a sense of comfort and security for men age 62 and older. The Home For Men is located at 1700 Warwood Avenue in Wheeling, West Virginia. It has been providing security and services for its residents for 87 years.

The home was originally created by a Wheeling banker and financier, Mr. John Brown, who felt that there was a need for a home for men over the age of 62. Today, we are a private foundation.

The Home

The Home For Men was completed in 1929 and today has 19 individual rooms, most with private baths. The Home provides a variety of amenities to its residents which include three (3) meals daily, daily and weekly housekeeping, laundry service, a weekly visit by a nurse, transportation to and from local doctor’s offices, shopping and outings, an on-site monthly barber, a podiatrist every six (6) weeks, cable TV and a host of organized activities.
