What We Do
Room at the Inn provides a warm and safe place to sleep for Columbia’s homeless during the winter months. Our shelter moves 5-7 times during the winter season, with area churches opening their doors to provide space for our Guests.
Why We're Great
Two big reasons. We are a “damp” shelter, which means that individuals who are “under the influence” will be admitted to the shelter. And our dedicated volunteers provide 90% of the shelter staffing and operational support.
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
Room at the Inn is often the shelter of last resort--many of our Guests can’t be admitted to other area shelters due to their use of drugs or alcohol. Our shelter is a refuge for those with nowhere else to go.
List of Volunteer and In-Kind Needs
Volunteers are needed from 6 PM - 8 AM each evening during the winter months.
