Room in the Inn
Opening hearts & houses of worship for 10 years
It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since volunteers at two local churches stepped out on faith and opened their hearts and houses of worship to people experiencing homelessness through a ministry known as Room in the Inn.
Today an estimated 200 volunteers at more than a dozen Tarrant County congregations support the Room in the Inn movement founded in Nashville and brought to North Texas by volunteers like
Mary Sumner and Corbie and Ray Brown.
Because there's Room in the Inn, people experiencing homelessness can spend a restful night off the streets or away from crowded shelters in the hottest and coldest months of the year, or July, August and December through February.
Host churches offer overnight accommodations, an evening meal and fellowship before guests turn in for the night, and t
he DRC provides guest screening, on-call case management and other support for Room in the Inn.
