Room in the Inn-Memphis is an ecumenical ministry that serves people experiencing homelessness. Now beginning our eighth year, we provide emergency shelter and meals during the coldest months of the year—November through March. We are modeled after the incredibly successful Room in the Inn program that started in Nashville more than 30 years ago.
Our goal is to share the love of God through hospitality. Shelter is a basic necessity that more than 2,000 people in Memphis are living without each night. Faith communities have large buildings and volunteers who can provide warmth, hospitality, meals and a good helping of kindness and respect.
After a successful start, Room in the Inn-Memphis continues to recruit more local congregations to become partners in this life-changing ministry.
