The coldest nights of the year occur between November and March. While winter brings hopes of snow days and warm fireplaces for many, for the homeless it can be deadly. 37,000 homeless people die each year because of inadequate shelter.
Room In The Inn-Memphis is a ministry of love. Congregations of every faith open their doors one night a week to a small number of pre-screened homeless individuals. Churches also provide transportation, an evening meal and human interaction in what would otherwise be unused space.
Visit the website for more information, including a list of participating churches.
